Synopsis

Our tissues, genes, and organs are becoming, in the words of the head of one pharmaceutical company, `the currency of the future'. From the trafficking of women for their eggs to `beauty junkies' and designer gene repair kits, Donna Dickenson reveals the myriad and often ingenious ways that body parts are converted into profits.







Despite what the media - or even your doctor - might say, the current biotechnological gold rush is not inevitable and can be resisted. This gripping, powerful book is essential reading for anyone concerned with the ownership and the commercial use (and abuse) of our bodies and those of our loved ones. The fight isn't over yet. Indeed, it's hardly begun.

Donna Dickenson is the first woman recipient of the International Spinoza Lens award for her contribution to public debate on ethics. She is Professor Emerita of Medical Ethics and Humanities at the University of London, and former John Ferguson Professor of Global Ethics at the University of Birmingham, UK. She is a regular contributor to radio and television, and has been profiled in The Times and in the foreign press. www.donnadickenson.net
