Your Right to Know
Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in your Food
by Andrew Kimbrell

$24.95 - Softcover - 152 pages

ARE YOU SHOPPING IN THE DARK?

We're all aware of genetically engineered foods, but few of us understand the issues or know the facts. For example, did you know that;

  • More than 60% of processed foods in your supermarket contain genetically engineered ingredients?
  • Genetic engineering can lower the nutritional value of foods?
  • Milk from cows treated with rBGH contains elevated levels of a hormone that has been linked to higher risk of colon, prostate, and breast cancers?
  • GE crops can lead to increased pesticide use?
  • GE crops threaten the livelihood of farmers across the country?
  • Genetic engineering could lead to the extinction of salmon and other fish species?

Your Right to Know; Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food explains the issues and tells us what we know and don't know about these foods. Most importantly it provides a comprehensive and up-to-the-minute guide on the very real dangers these altered foods present to our health, the environment and farm communities.

"Whether you are part of the organic movement or just an interested member of the public, Your Right to Know; Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in your Food, is a must-read on this vitally important issue. The scientists, food experts, farmers, and health professionals who have come together to produce this book do us all a real service."
