What are some ethical concerns or benefits of using GMOs based on the Christian Worldview

Man vs. Nature

This week we are discussing Genetically Modified Foods and just like any product available there are pros and cons. This will be a hands-on assignment that will require you visit a grocery store to compare and contrast Genetically Modified and Organic produce. Be sure to select the same type of fruit or vegetable to compare and contrast. You are not required to buy the product!

Note: You may ask a store employee for help to identify which produce is organic and which is a Non-organic.
