|About the Book|
In this critical and timely book, food industry and biotech expert Brewster Kneen reveals whats really happening down on the farm. Readers will be unsettled to learn of the genetically engineered products that are subtly being introduced into our supermarkets, healthfood stores, and home-gardening outlets. Without presuming a scientific background of his readers, Kneen provides a multidisciplinary account of what biotechnology is and how it is affecting the worlds food supply, where it came from, the direction its heading, and how to resist it. Kneen persuasively argues that genetic engineering has been born from a western belief system in progress, industrialization, and technology.
