New York, NY: McGraw-Hill PLEASE USE THE ABOVE RESOURCE AND THEN ONE MORE OUTSIDE RESOURCE FOR TOTAL OF AT LEAST TWO. THIS IS THE ETHICAL THEORY I WOULD LIKE TO USE..EXAMPLE choose Utilitarianism because I fully believe in the greatest happiness principle. "The greatest happiness principle is also known as the principle of utility. The utility of an action is determined by its tendency to produce or promote happiness. Actions that result in happiness have positive utility; those that create misery have negative utility. In weighing the effects of an action, utilitarianism maintains that we must take into consideration all of the parties concerned and that all parties shall be given equal consideration. Thus, utilitarianism is committed to the value of equality"(Steinbock, 2012, p. 10). I have always looked at the consequences of a choice and base my decisions on that most of the time. I also look at how the consequences of my choice will affect the others that may be involved. How will it play out not only for myself but also for all those involved? That is how I base my choices in life. Reference Steinbock, Bonnie. Ethical Issues in Modern Medicine. 8th Edition. McGraw-Hill Learning Solutions, 2012. VitalBook file. Bookshelf

However, they have not mastered the current food demand and it is eminent that if enough is not done by then, there will be a food crisis (Ifad.org, 2014). This is not a situation that is only limited to the developing countries. In the United States of America, hunger remains high several years after the economic and financial crisis. The 2008 financial and economic crisis wrecked havoc on food security. More than 17billion households are food insecure and more than 46.5 million people are poor. Genetic has a chance to turn around the food security crisis, using the Genetically Modified Organisms technology as the frontline (Steinbock, London & Arras, 2013).Thesis Statement Genetically modified foods can increase the level of food security in the world by 2050.The Position GMOs foods can be u...
