Eat your Genes
How Genetically Modified Food Is Entering Our DietBook - 1998
Food safety scares such as salmonella in eggs or BSE in beef continue to cause public concern. But far more unnoticed is the way that genetic engineered food is entering our diet. This book looks at how this situation came about, revealing those responsible for driving genetically modified foods so rapidly on to the market. Stephen Nottingham argues that consumer pressure could decide whether these new products succeed or fail. His book gives us the facts: what these new foods are, how they are produced, why they remain unlabelled and how they are arriving on our plates unannounced. Never before has science been likely to have quite such a huge impact on our lives--after all, we are what we eat. Here is an issue every thinking person needs to apply their mind to. This is the book to help you do it.
