Final Project 2
Topic 1: Investigating the impact of GMO foods on child development
The problem addressed under this topic is whether there are negative effects of using genetically modified organisms (GMO) food particularly on children. This has been selected as a topic of research following the increased prevalence of GMO foods across the world. Governments and non-government organizations have started promoting the use of these foods as a result of unpredictable climate changes which result into some regions experiencing food insecurity and shortages. With this increased use of the foods, there is a need to determine the effect the foods have on the members of the society. This study would focus in children as they are within the development stages.
Topic 2: Investigating the effect of cultural values on professional ethics
The problem addressed in the research topic is the actual impact of cultural values on professional ethics. In most cases, professionals are not aware of how their cultural backgrounds define their ability to conform to the professional ethics and code of conduct in their professions and careers. Therefore, with this study topic, it would be easier for professionals to understand the impact their cultural values on their professions.
Topic 3: Investigating the role of technology in cultural degradation
The problem addressed in the study topic is filling the information gap on the effects of technology on cultural values and beliefs change in a society. This is crucial in establishing what part of current cultural degradation in different societies is contributed by the current technology advancements. The reason as to why this research topic is necessary as part of applied sciences is establishing the effect of social media, internet and increased exchange of information on cultural values (Beretta et al, 2018).
