Editorial Reviews

Review

Gary E. Marchant, Thomas P. Redick and Guy A. Cardineau (two lawyers and a biotechnologist, respectively) stand against mandatory labeling requirements for genetically modified foods. In this slim volume, published by the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, the authors argue that while GM labeling is designed to give consumers more choice at the grocery store, the law will actually harm consumers by pushing such foods off the shelves....It provides interesting food for thought. (Review Of Higher Education, June 2010)

I bought the book for my debate in English class. The book was not thick. But it has enough information. That was so helpful for me.

Fewer issues in the debate surrounding food and agriculture have suffered more from from misinformation and propaganda than the issue of mandatory labeling of transgenic foods. The authors skillfully lift the lid off the container of myth and misinformation. Consumers deserve real information and real choices, not bumper sticker warning labels designed for the express purpose of scaring them off. Similarly, developing countries deserve the right to determine without propaganda swaying their decisions regarding transgenic agriculture.

We all know gmos are dangerous. (If you are ignorant of this, do a little research)
It kills the animals they test on yet the fda says it safe.
All other countries but ours labels it, now why is that people? This book is obviously chock full of bs and would be an enormous waste of time

This book is propaganda at it's finest! GMO's are destroying our agriculture! The bees are dying at alarming rates because of pesticides and GMO's. If the bees go extinct, we as a human race have about 4 years to live on this planet. That's a quote from Einstein by the way.
