In recent decades, global economic growth has benefited many countries and regions. However, regional poverty has been challenging for many peoples, and one of the biggest problems is related to the death caused by hunger. Fortunately, genetically modified food can vastly improve food production, which could be one of the effective solutions in tackling hunger related issues. This paper points out the issues related to poverty, genetically modified food, and global warming based on a comprehensive literature review and critical analysis. In summary, these research findings indicate that poverty can lead to problems such as health issues, instability, and barriers to economic growth. Although genetically modified food could negatively impact biodiversity, it can also improve food production, which can help in managing hunger related issues. With the limited capacity and resources and based on the current situation, poverty and global warming should be given a priority, and more research and awareness on genetically modified food could also be an effective way to handle these problems.
