Abstract:

"Biotechnology and food. Hardly a day goes by without a story in the news media extolling the virtues of the latest breakthrough in biotechnology or else warning of the dire consequences of using the new technology. Is biotechnology really as beneficial and safe as some say? Is it as hazardous as others claim? Where can the interested consumer get accurate information in language understandable to the non-scientist?" "Biotechnology & Food for Canadians provides an opportunity for curious if perhaps anxious consumers to understand the basics of biotechnology. It also examines some of the issues at the forefront of the public debate: Do genetically modified foods present a hazard to human or animal health? What impact does a crop developed using biotechnology have upon the environment? How do Canadian government agencies evaluate the new products and assure their safety? What current foods have been developed using biotechnology and is there any real benefit for consumers and the environment?"--Jacket.
