Plant genetic engineering has been the fastest technology adopted in human history to achieve quantitative and qualitative superiority by farmers. This technology has real benefits to the environment and the livelihood of farmers. Unfortunately, despite numerous credible scientific studies on the safety of GM products for the consumer and the environment, this technology still faces misleading claims by some. The results of a comprehensive study of articles published in the authoritative scientific journals show that the transgenic plant cultivation reduced pesticide use by 37%, increased yield by 22% and increased farmers' income by 68%. Given the new purpose of development and cultivation of transgenic plants in the country, it is necessary to answer some questions raised by officials, farmers, consumers, media and others on various aspects of transgenic crop safety at the community level. Provide them with concise and simple ones. Therefore, this article will answer 20 important questions about transgenic products.
