Written in collaboration with Ben Lilliston. Stormy debates about genetically engineered (GE) food have raged throughout Asia and Europe, Particularly in the UK, where the 1995 outbreak of “mad cow” disease ignited a groundswell of activism and outrage about food safety. Now, as the GE food debate gains momentum in the United States and elsewhere around the world, two leading consumer advocates give us this comprehensive, up-to-the-minute guide to the risks posed by GE foods–and what you can do to avoid them. Ronnie Cummins and Ben Lilliston discuss the ethical, environmental, and health arguments against GE food, how these foods are being regulated in the U.S. and abroad, and why consumers are right to oppose them.
