-- The perfect guide for anyone who wants to kw more about genetically modified crops -- what they are, how many countries already use them, and why they're a problem -- 'Rees unmasks the biotech industry's horrific tactics in their race to take over our food supply and the devastation that their crops will inflict.' Jeffrey M. Smith, international best-selling author, Seeds of Deception 'This has great pace and is very accessible [and] technically accurate.' Dr Michael Antoniou, Reader in Molecular Genetics at Kings College, London, Guy's Hospital Campus 'Gives a great boost to all public-spirited citizens who want to get their facts straight...Highly recommended!' Dr Arpad Pusztai, the world's leading expert on plant lectins Written by a leading campaigner for GM Watch, one of the world's leading lobbying groups, this short account reveals the huge issues that are at stake. Genetically modified food has been headline news for years, but it's difficult to kw how far the genetic revolution has affected our lives. Is the food on our shelves free of genetically engineered ingredients? How much power do food corporations wield? Andy Rees provides the answers. He shows that, while corporations that produce genetically modified food have met with resistance in Europe, their hold on the U.S. market is strong. They're also expanding operations in less-regulated countries in Africa, Asia and the former Soviet bloc. The U.S. has launched a legal suit to attempt to force the European market open to genetically modified food. What does the future hold? This brilliantly readable book tells us all we need to kw.
Andy Rees is the author of The Pocket Green Book: The Environmental Crisis in a Nutshell (Zed, 1991) and former editor of GM Watch's Weekly Watch.
