In this case, some people opine that that the modern technology has the responsibility to do the advancements in food technology for producing more genetically modified foods for today’s people in the world. Write in a simpler form: Some people opine that it is modern technology’s responsibility to produce more food to meet needs of growing human population using genetic engineering (genetically modified crops).
