5.0 out of 5 stars you are what you eat, November 16, 2007
This review is from: Your Right to Know: Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food (Hardcover)
Andrew Kimbrell, editor of the famed Fatal Harvest, has come out with a new book, Your Right to Know: Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food. It is a very comprehensive guide as to how genetically engineered foods are impacting our everyday lives. As someone who cares about local agriculture and food safety issues, it is nice to finally see a book like this available for likeminded people who want to know more about GE. The book does a great job covering many different issues from personal health and the ecological impacts to the revolving door between policy makers and industry lobbyers and the future of farming. Kimbrell makes issues surrounding industrial agriculture and GE accessible and educational- I found the book incredibly user-friendly. It is a great book to pick up and read while you wait for the water to boil- the short sections and educational inserts don't require large blocks of time. Your Right to Know also makes a great, educational coffee table book for families and foodies alike- it's full of informative pictures, interesting facts, and inspirational quotes. I especially love the chapter that goes through the supermarket aisle by aisle, telling you the pitfalls and rules of thumb for how to avoid GE foods. It even comes with a handy pull-out Pocket Shoppers' Guide that you can take with you when you go shopping as a reminder. This book is a must for anybody who cares about the food they eat!
