About this product
- DescriptionGenetically engineered plant products line the shelves of our grocery stores, but we don't kw which ones they are because label identifies them. Should we be concerned? It is true that biotech companies are saying that engineered corn and cala are safe, but are they telling the truth? In High Tech Harvest, Paul Lurquin answers these questions and more, believing that the public has a right to kw and understand how its food is manipulated at the most basic level, that of the DNA itself. With the goal to inform, and a mission to reinforce the importance of the scientific method, Paul Lurquin writes a comprehensive and user-friendly description of the scientific origins, the development, and the applications of genetically modified plants throughout the world today. Lurquin argues that only with an understanding of the basic science can people make informed and reasonable decisions about genetically modified foods.
