Abstract
Biotech is called the 4th industry revolution in human history, and the 21st century is called the century of biotechnology represented by gene technology which trans-genetic technology is the important part of it. The biotech application speed is the quickest comparing with other technologies, and now it was regarded the best and only way to solve the global food shortage in a limited short period of time by quite many people for its application in agriculture. The estimation population in 2050 will reach to nearly 9 billions, but genetically modified foods (GMF) will really lead us to another Garden of Eden? Who should take more responsibilities for the ecosystem deteriorating conditions we are facing now? What the biodiversity sharply declining means to us? Is the life patent reasonable? By revaluation the anthropocentrism being abandoned for quite long, the answers for above questions may be sorted out.
