Description

Mother Jones investigates "the worldwide revolt over gene-altered foods [that] has begun to take root in this country." Critics of genetically engineered, or GE, crops say such food products could "create unexpected new allergens or contaminate products in unanticipated ways, resulting in threats to public health... In addition, many scientists fear that bio-engineered crops could spark widespread ecological damage, creating insecticide-resistant bugs and herbicide-resistant 'superweeds' that would make kudzu and purple look like so many summer dandelions." Mother Jones discovered that the Food and Drug Administration ignored the objections of several scientists concerning the safety of GE foods and products.
