About this product
- DescriptionThe GM debate has been ongoing for over a decade, yet it has been contained in the scientific world and presented in technical terms. Eco Crime and Genetically Modified Food brings the debates about GM food into the social and crimilogical arena. This book highlights the criminal and harmful actions of state and corporate officials. It concludes that corporate and political corruption, uncertain science, bitter public opposition, growing farmer concern and bankruptcy, irreversible damage to biodervisty, corporate mopolies and exploitation, disregard for social and cultural practices, devastation of small scale and local agricultural ecomies, imminent threats to organics, weak regulation, and widespread political and biotech mistrust - do t provide the bases for advancing and progressing GM foods into the next decade. Yet, with the backing of the WTO, the US and UK Governments march on - but at what cost to future generations?
