Genetically Engineered Food: Changing the Nature of Nature

Authors Martin Teitel and Kimberly Wilson explain what genetic engineering
is and how it works, then explore the health risks involved with eating
organisms never before seen in nature. They address the ecological
catastrophe that could result from these modified plants crossing with wild
species and escaping human control altogether, as well as the economic
devastation that may befall small farmers who find themselves at the mercy
of mega-corporations for their livelihood. Taking the discussion a step
further, they consider the ethical and spiritual implications of this
radical change in our relationship to the natural world, showing what the
future holds and giving you the information you need to act on your own or
join others in preserving the independence and integrity of our food supply.

"This is by-far the most accessible and informative publication on genetic
engineering in food production that I have read to date. Written so that
the non-scientist can fully understand the scope of this technology with
numerous footnotes and references that are a handy resource guide for those
seeking more knowledge. An excellent publication."

--Katherine DiMatteo, Executive Director, Organic Trade Association

"Cuts through all the hype and misconceptions surrounding genetically
engineered food and provides the indispensible primer for every family in
America. It is informed, intelligent, and chock-full of common sense. I
urge every consumer to read this book before walking into the supermarket
again."

--Jeremy Rifkin, author of The Biotech Century
