Product Description
Could genetic modification end worldwide famine?
Should foods containing GM products be labelled as such?
Would you eat a vegetable if it contained animal genes?
Genetic Modification of Food explains how genetic engineering has led to artificial selection and the selective breeding of animals and crops. Learn about cloning, how genes are inherited, mutations occur, and how scientists insert genes from one orgamism into the DNA of another. Consider whether or not growth hormones should be given to cows to increase their milk yield and used to produce "super salmon". Discuss the issues surrounding cross-pollintion, how GM crops affect wildlife, and the possibility of using GM oil-crops to replace fossil fuels.
