Synopsis

Eat Your Genes describes the genetic engineering techniques used in agriculture. It explores the food industry`s commercial motivations, why certain crop modifications have predominated, and the importance of patenting to the genetic engineering enterprise.





This book explains how crop segregation and labelling are central to the debate, and outlines the development of consumer resistance to the marketing of GM food in Europe. The potential health and ecological risks, the ethical issues, and the implications for both industrialized and developing countries are examined.



The author argues that genetic engineering is still a long way from meeting its promises of feeding the world`s hungry and contributing to a more eco-friendly agriculture.



As the public debate over the desirability of GM food continues, this is the book to help you think through what is involved.

Stephen Nottingham is the author of Genescapes: The Ecology of Genetic Engineering (2002).
