Abstract:

"An estimated 60 to 70 percent of all processed foods now on supermarket shelves contain genetically engineered ingredients, but because of the food industry's conflicting claims and opposition to product labeling, many consumers are left dangerously in the dark. In this book, leading consumer advocates Ronnie Cummins and Ben Lilliston provide an all-in-one guide to the risks posed by GE foods and what you can do to avoid them. They discuss all of the ethical, environmental, and health arguments against GE food, how these foods are being regulated in the U.S. Canada, and abroad, and why consumers are right to oppose them."--Jacket.
