Overview

A study of the biotechnology revolution & its ethical & social consequences & risks. Kimbrell questions the ethical foundations of a market-driven approach to the human body with plenty of examples & a philosophy rooted in a view of the body as sacred. This shocking expose uncovers startling information on the human body shop: the marketing of the human body, including the sale of blood, organs, & fetal tissue; the merchandising of human fertility; & the engineering & manipulation of genes, viruses, & microbes. Through real-life, controversial case studies we meet those who gain & who lose from these transactions.
