Summary
Seventy-five percent of processed foods on supermarket shelves - from soda to soup, crackers to condiments - contain genetically engineered ingredients. The long-term effects of these foods on human health and ecology are still unknown, and public concern had steadily intensified. This important book on the subject features thought-provoking essays by leading scientists, science writers, and public health advocates who address the potential dangers of GMO foods and how to mitigate them
