What is genetic pollution?



  1. 0 Votes

    Genetic pollution refers to the contamination of plant and animal populations with genes from genetically engineered species.  Genetic pollution occurs when plants and animals in nature or traditional agriculture interbreed with genetically engineered varieties introduced by industrial agricultural companies.  This allows the transfer of engineered genes into new populations of plants and animals, which may be affected in ways that are hard to predict.  Genetic pollution is extremely hard to reverse once it occurs, so the only solution to this problem may be to contain the spread of genetically engineered organisms around the world.
