I am from India and activism against GM foods has been steadily growing here. Organizations like Greenpeace etc are also militantly campaigning against GM crops. But no one is exactly furnishing the pros and cons of the same. If any of you has indepth knowledge on this subject, request you to kindly share the same here. I have done a fair bit of research on this and honestly it has confused me even more. My confusion can be summarized using below questions. Please answer the same:
1. Are GM crops harmful to our health?
2. Can industrial production of such crops impact native crops.
3. Are they really a necessity ( I think they are but just asking)?
4. Whats the exact procedure of producing such a crop?
