Genetically Modified Foods
....Genetic engineering refers to several different technologies, including the molecular identification and analysis of genes and DNA, the extraction and isolation of DNA, cloning DNA fragments, gene-splicing, and shifting DNA from a test tube to a Petri dish or from one bacteria to another.
....Genetically modified (GM) foods, a result of genetic engineering, have become the focus of intense controversy and public debate. Yet very little unbiased information about GM foods has been available.
....In Pandora's Picnic Basket, molecular geneticist and experienced researcher Alan McHughen addresses issues of real concern in a fair-minded, well-informed manner. I highly recommend this book for an objective look at all sides of this highly controversial issue.
