This book is both an exposé and educational primer on this controversial technology that is already a part of every American’s diet.

Genetic engineering has far outrun the science that must be its first governing discipline. Corporate promoters, such as the Monsanto Corporation, are racing to be first in their markets, while playing a guessing game with the environment and their customers on farms and in grocery stores. This is why they cannot answer the many central questions raised in this book. As authors Martin Teitel and Kimberly Wilson point out, the very techniques used to change the genetic material in traditional food plants may change the function of other genes in ways that we cannot foresee. Costly mistakes of past and current technologies--from motor vehicles to atomic power reactors--should give us pause.
