Votre note
Are you concerned about genetically modified (GM) food? Are you worried about the impact of GMOs on the environment or on your own health? Will genetic engineering really help to eradicate starvation and malnutrition? The issue of genetically modified foods has fast become one of the most debated - and polarized - issues of recent years. However, in spite of the great heat generated by the debate, it remains difficult for consumers to find an unbiased source of information on the subject. This book aims to provide consumers with all the information they need to make an informed decision about the risks and benefits of genetically modified food. In an accessible and lively manner, the book explains: • the technologies underlying GM food • 'natural' methods of plant breeding and production and how they compare with GM technology • the safeguards put in place by regulators; around the world-are they sufficient? • the honesty and usefulness of labelling • health and environmental issues arising out of GM technology • the truth behind some of the scare stories • how consumers can seek to avoid GMOs if they so choose By the end of the book, you will be able to decide whether to support or challenge this technology, the products of which are increasingly pervasive.
