Absolutely everyone must eat. People decide several times a day what to eat and what not to eat, and the personal issue about genetically modified food is whether it is safe to eat—not only in the moment, but over the long-run. Designer Food addresses these and other pressing questions surrounding the ethics of genetically modified food in the premier, single authored commentary on the subject. Beginning with a thorough chronicling of GM Food's rise to fame first in England and later in North America, the book considers such issues as the symbolic importance of food, world hunger, food terrorism and sabatoge, and democratic public participation in the growing debate surrounding genetically modified food.
