Is the food on our shelves free of genetically engineered ingredients?
- In the US, although they may not know it, most people already eat genetically modified food.
- Since the introduction of GM foods seven years ago, food-derived illnesses in the US have doubled.
- In the UK foods are contaminated with GM material through the 1 million tonnes of GM maize and soy used to feed livestock.
So far the major corporations have met resistance in Europe but their worldwide influence is huge - and grows all the time. GM foods are increasingly prevalent despite NEVER having been tested on humans.
Are genetically modified crops dangerous to the environment and to our bodies? In this brilliantly readable guide Andy Rees provides the answers.
Andy Rees is the author of The Pocket Green Book: The Environmental Crisis in a Nutshell (1991) and former editor of GM Watch's Weekly Watch.
