Please provide the answer to these questions very very urgently!!!

Dear Student,

Ans 9.

There are certain controversies regarding the use of genetically modified crops around the world. While creating genetically modified organism, genetic barriers are not respected. The use of these crops can affect the native biodiversity in an area. For example, the use of Bt toxin to decrease the amount of pesticide is posing a threat for beneficial insect pollinators such as honey bee. If the gene expressed for Bt toxin gets expressed in the pollen, then the honey bee might be affected. As a result, the process of pollination by honey bees would be affected. Also, genetically modified crops are affecting human health. They supply allergens and certain antibiotic resistance markers in the body. Also, they can cause genetic pollution in the wild relatives of the crop plants. Hence, it is affecting our natural environment. Due to all these factors, creating genetically modified organisms is considered dangerous in the long run.

P.S. For the rest of the questions, kindly post them in a separate thread.
