Genetically Altered Foods and Your Health
By Ken Roseboro
How genetic engineering threatens your food
Most people don’t know what’s in the food
they eat every day. Although the recognized brands of packaged foods,
salad dressings, canned goods, soft drinks, and snack foods may look
the same as always, 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—and answers these questions:
are scientists genetically altering foods?
What genetically engineered foods are you eating?
Are genetically engineered foods safe?
Why aren't GE foods labeled?
Concise consumers’ guideAuthor Ken Roseboro addresses these and other issues concerning GE foods, and shows why organic foods are practical—and safe—alternatives to this risky technology.
Concise, yet highly informative, Genetically Altered Foods and Your Health provides practical steps to ensure that the foods you eat are healthy and safe.
