Genetically Altered Foods and Your Health

by Ken Roseboro (Author), Thomas Hirsch (Editor)

Book Description
Most people don't know what's in the food they eat every day. Although the
recognized brands of packaged and processed foods, salad dressings, canned
goods, soft drinks, snack foods, and so on may look the same as always, in many
cases their contents have radically changed. They now contain something new and
unfamiliar: genetically engineered ingredients. "Genetically Altered Foods and
Your Health" examines how genetic engineering is radically changing our food-at
great risk to human health and the environment. Why are scientists genetically
altering foods? Are they safe? Why aren't genetically engineered foods labeled
as such? Author Ken Roseboro addresses these and other issues concerning
genetically altered foods, and explains why organic foods are practical and safe
alternatives to this risky technology.
