Resumen

This is the perfect guide for anyone who wants to know more about GM crops - what they are, how many countries already use them, and why they're a problem. Written by a leading campaigner for GM Watch, one of the world's leading anti-GM lobbying groups, this short and accurate account reveals the huge issues that are at stake. Genetically modified food has been headline news for a few years now: but it's difficult to know how far the GM revolution has affected our lives. Is the food on our shelves really GM-free? How much influence and power do food corporations wield over our lives? Andy Rees provides the answers. He shows that, while GM corporations have met with resistance in Europe, their hold on the American market is already strong. They're also expanding operations in less-regulated countries in Africa, Asia and the former Soviet bloc. Britain is supposedly GM-free, but we continue to import over 100 million tonnes of GM animal feed every year. The US has launched a legal suit in an attempt to force the European market open to GM foods. What does the future hold? This brilliantly readable book tells us all what we need to know.
