    Good morning

    Right, you could do the following:

    Look at the science between GM foods, then the pros and cons, talk about science, and how whether we really know it is fact, and how real facts can be determined etc etc.

    Then look at whether it is morally right to eat GM goods, and how a moral code has developed in our society, and what it is based upon, and why it is there.

    After that look at the implications of eating GM foods, talk about the ends justifying the means etc.

    Hope this helps x

    I dunno what a tok presentation is but I've done stuff on GM (genetically modified) foods before.. Basically focus on both sides (for and against GM foods, the dangers, the benefits and future advances in GM food technology and the process of a few GM foods such as beta cartone rice (golden rice), insulin bacteria, frost resistant crops, etc. and also the general process about how Genetic modification works (e.g. enzymes used (restriction + ligase), technical terms (e.g. plasmid),etc..

    Hope this helps! (Please give rep if it does help you)

    base your knowledge issues on moral and ask whether it is ethical to produce GM foods and give examples inside and outside of your country of any protests and research against GM foods.
