Genetic engineering is rapidly being used by many scientists around the world, helping cure and remove many diseases and gene defects in humans. However, it is now being said that hundreds of thousands of animals are also being engineered, not just for their own benefits, but for our benefits. Throughout this article, I will be addressing the growing concerns regarding the issue, giving a run down on the benefits for humans, whilst also talking about the risks involved, both for the animals and the humans.
Genetic engineering can be used to add or remove genes in DNA. The process of the experiment is very slow, however new research and a development in technology has made the process more efficient and quicker. Some of the benefits of the process include:
To conclude this article, I think that genetic engineering should not be conducted on animals for human benefits as it is a very dangerous process which has killed thousands of innocent animals and has had effects on both the ecosystems and children of the animals.
