9780006531906: GE: Genetic Engineering and You

From highly respected and best-seller author of Super Tips – All you need to know about Genetically Engineered food

Moyra Bremner is a journalist and author of the much acclaimed and best-selling SuperTips books. This book will be an instant publication – B format paperback and aimed at the mass market. It will uncover the truth about genetically modified food and reveal everything that governments are trying to cover up. It will not blind people with science but will be authoritative and well-researched – if written from the clear position that tampering with the biosphere is bad. Clearly, this is a controversial and hot news story at the moment but I think that the combination of genuine revulsion and fear that we know not what we eat, plus the environmental consquences of these chemicals and the public sense of a conspiracy afoot between government and big business combine to make this a winning formula. There will more to this book than dodgy tomatoes and curious carrots and Moyra will look into the very serious consequences that these chemicals can play on the biodiversity of the planet – particularly in the third world. There is no other book like this available at the moment and a great deal of disquiet and scare stories floating around.

From the Back Cover:

Genetic engineering is today's Chernobyl. No subject affects our lives more deeply.

Moyra Bremner, best selling author, broadcaster, and acclaimed science writer, exposes NEW evidence of how it may harm vital areas of your life. In clear, dynamic language she goes to the heart of the matter, making sense of the key issue, and revealing astonishing NEW facts that affect you – and those you love.

• the deaths and illness already linked to GE
• which foods are safe and which are not
• grave risks to babies and children
• the ruthless exploitation of animals
• the secret power struggles which may starve the world
• the plans to cripple plants – to sell more toxic chemicals
• how human genes are already in tomorrow's food
• how companies can patent your genes – while you live
• the creation of fatal new diseases
• the power of each of us to change this.

No book on this topic is as readable, comprehensive and thought provoking. She also shows that, by its utter disregard for life, much genetic engineering challenges us to rediscover our deepest values: the importance of free choice and safety, respect for the natural world – and our humanity.

This is a book nobody can afford to be without.
