Summary

In all the clamor about GM crops, food and animals, is there anyone you can trust? In a debate where half truths, exaggerations and agendas abound, "Engineering Genesis" was acclaimed as the most balanced and informed study available when it first appeared in 1998. It combines scientific accuracy with ethical and social insights into this complex field. The new and completely revised edition examines current and forthcoming developments in GM food and crops, like functional foods and terminator technology with new chapters on ecological and health risks, the driving forces and the role of GM in globalization. It covers the recent dramatic developments in animal genetics and human medicine and asks whether we should engineer living things and how we control the consequences.
