Shedding Light on Genetically Engineered Food: What You Dont Know About the Food Youre Eating

by Beth H Harrison (Author)

Book Description
The evidence is clear and overwhelming: genetically engineered food is big
business, a profitable product on the global market, and as a $6.15 billion
industry in 2006, its growth and corporate power are undeniable. Despite the
United States government and biotechnology industry's assertion that genetically
engineered food is harmless, Americans must question its safety. The truth is
that genetically engineered food has never been tested for human consumption.
When genetically engineered food was introduced in America more than a decade
ago, it was promoted as a solution to some of the world's food problems;
however, the promised advantages have never been realized. Beth H. Harrison,
PhD, explores why these crops do not benefit consumers, do not feed the world,
do not help the environment, and are not rigorously regulated. Yet the
government and the biotechnology industry expend questionable efforts to
"educate" consumers, the media, and politicians with propaganda championing
genetically engineered food as safe and necessary. Meanwhile, an unsuspecting
public continues to be force-fed untested, unlabeled food that carries potential
adverse health effects.

Harrison provides a convincing argument as to why American consumers must
question the collusion between their government and the biotechnology industry:
their health-and yours-depends on it.
