Engineering the Farm offers a wide-ranging examination of the social and ethical issues surrounding the production and consumption of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), with leading thinkers and activists taking a broad theoretical approach to the subject. Topics covered include: - the historical roots of the anti-biotechnology movement - ethical Issues involved in introducing genetically altered crops - questions of patenting and labeling - the "precautionary principle" and its role in the regulation of GMOs - effects of genetic modification on the world's food supply - ecological concerns and impacts on traditional varieties of domesticated crops - potential health effects of GMOs Contributors argue that the scope, scale, and size of the present venture in crop modification is so vast and intensive that a throughgoing review of agricultural biotechnology must consider its global, moral, cultural, and ecological impacts as well as its effects on individual consumers. Throughout, they argue that more research is needed on genetically modified food and that consumers are entitled to specific information about how food products have been developed. Despite its increasing role in worldwide food production, little has been written about the broader social and ethical implications of GMOs. Engineering the Farm offers a unique approach to the subject for academics, activists, and policymakers involved with questions of environmental policy, ethics, agriculture, environmental he agricultural sciences,agriculture,bioengineering,biological sciences,biology and life sciences,biotechnology,business and finance,business culture,business ethics,earth sciences Biotechnology, Island Press
