In nature everything should lead a balanced life cycle and in case of science and biotechnology as well. Undoubtedly over the last decade biotechnology has brought a many research in human, animal as well as plants. Using various tools and techniques scientists has been able to modify organisms, plants and animals using various techniques. So the biotechnology has a major advantages and it has certainly improved the condition of human beings and plant living. Meanwhile it has its own share of disadvantage.
Here are few potential dangers of biotechnology that are harmful to the ecosystem.
Biodiversity in Plantation
In an ecosystem all creature’s health depends on a balanced life cycle i.e. biodiversity of different type of plants and trees. But potentially new technology in biodiversity threatens on all creatures by introducing single type of organism, such as a genetically modified seeds across a wide area. As per the Altieri university of California, it has proved that in areas where genetically modified seeds have lost some their natural resistance. Also lack of biodiversity makes ecosystem imbalance.
Contamination in Natural Ingredients
In United States, most of the agricultural areas are contaminated due to distribution of genetically modified seeds. This has created lack of imbalance in the ecosystem as well as in the agricultural areas. In 2013, the director of Food and Environment program team had researched that unanticipated pollination has the potential to undermine biodiversity and threaten existing agricultural systems by causing genetic erosion.
Low Resistance Due To Herbicide
The addition of chemical pesticides and herbicides to the genetic composition of seeds lead to toxic in the plants as well as in the agricultural area. Also the wide spread distribution of genetic seeds associated with the growth of superweeds can cause harmful for human beings and other living creatures.
According to research, framers uses increased amounts of agricultural chemicals, which then contaminate the plantation areas and threaten the soil fertility as well as leach into waterways.
Harmful To Animal Life
As animal and insects feed on genetic crop, it can severally harm the health of all spices. Most of the imperiled butterflies are dying in more numbers due to exposure of toxins in genetically modified crops. The new techniques and tools in biotechnology can harm for insects and animal life by causing allergies, antibiotic and also potentially disrupting on all living creature hormone levels.
As a lot of facts proves that today’s biotechnology system causes many defects and leads to disruption on the ecosystem. There are some defects whose causes can be cured with certain extent and other defects are entirely unclear. Also the health disorder and disruption of ecosystem often take a long time to cure.
