okay- could someone help me with this, please? https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Rfhh44upJvCV64m-Gx7oLTjMBY_pg-_7_0vWfJk1lx8/edit?usp=sharing
For the first one, I guess the timeline has different entries about whether or not transgenes from GM crops are present in Oaxacan corn. The reports from 2001 and 2007-2009 say these genes are present, while the report form 2005 says they are not. That information, taken by itself, could lead to different conclusions
For the second question, it seems like the amount of GM corn being grown has increased as time has gone on, so you could say the "risk of contamination" is becoming more likely
For the third question, it seems kind of obvious that the regulations of one nation wouldn't be able to protect the crops of another nation, which might have completely different regulations. Also, I guess it's possible for seeds to be carried across borders, which could affect plants between nations?
For the fourth one, the timeline says that GM corn can be more resistant to insects, so that could lead to more corn crops and increased availability of food. On the other hand, it might be a problem if the GM corn grown by humans interacts too much with the naturally growing corn in the wild, so that could be an environmental concern
okay! thank you so much, you've saved me from failing science-
Haha, I'm sure that's an exaggeration, but I'm happy to help!
nah, you quite literally did-
