Take part in research and have chance to win £100!
My name is Ilnur Bakhtigaryaev. I am doing my Master's at MMU and currently working on dissertation devoted to food preferences in terms
of different farming techniques.
Anyone knows that the origin of food we eat must be taken into careful consideration. Genetically modified food products might contain genes
from incompatible species, e.g. a company Pioneer Hi-Bred attempted to modify soybeans with purpose to make them be more nutritious by
transfer of brazil nuts gene, which contains methionine, but the process also transported main food allergen from these nuts to soybeans, which
was proved by tests on volunteers with such allergy! Obviously, this soya was banned and cannot be consumed anywhere.
However, coming global
challenges, such as climate change, population growth and shortages of exhaustible resources, require significant changes in current agriculture to
ensure sustainability of the environment in the future.
As you know where are three main approaches to agriculture and the most promising is biotech farming. However, risks associated with transfer
of genes among incompatible species (e.g. from Bt bacterium to corn) are very dangerous. Organic farming in global scale might be disuster for
humanity, because necessity to cut down forests might arise. It has been experienced that inappropriate preparation of manure caused e.coli
contamination in organic produce that resulted in deaths. Convenient agriculture poison the environment and consumers.
Nevertheless, each farming technique has its own advantages over the others, and if you want to find out more, lets just exchange the knowledge!
The main method that is utilised in my thesis is email interview. It designed to obtain your opinion about recent developments in the
food industry, then I will show you a video presentation, which based on scientific evidences and covers pros and cons of each farming technique.
I am sure that this material will be of particular interest for individuals, who really cares about food she/he eats. It covers a very promising approach
to farming that might solve the most of global issues! I will also be happy to share all my knowledge in the area of food production and management.
The obtained data will be used to generate conclusions about previously undiscussed issue only, without any attemt to commercialise the findings.
Participation is absolutely anonimous. What you need to do is to sent me an e-mail to
email removed members can send you a message via the site
with 'interview' in the main box and I will immediately respond to you.
I have just one month left to finish my dissertation and will really appreciate and enjoy participation of such great conscious consumers, which you certainly are.
And dont forget about a chance to win £100! The winner will be randomly chosen and announced by the end of the research.
Thanks for your time,
