Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Whether you are part of the organic movement or just an interested member of the public, Your Right to Know: Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food is a must-read on this vitally important issue. The scientists, food experts, farmers, and health professionals who have come together to produce this book do us all a real service." - Nell Newman, Newman's Own Organics

"Food activists describe genetically engineered foods as 'Frankenfood.' They say that by growing and eating them we are opening 'Pandora's Pantry.' What is the truth? Is this just overheated rhetoric, or are we taking potentially catastrophic risks? This new book by Andrew Kimbrell is wise, sane, and reliable. It will enable you to make informed and healthy choices. It;s the answer we've been needing." - John Robbins, author of Healthy at 100 and Diet for a New America

"In this important primer, Kimbrell explains the threats that GE foods pose to our health, our environment, and our farming communities. He reminds us that the everyday decisions we make about the food we eat have the power to change the world." - Alice Waters, Chez Panisse

"Andrew Kimbrell, America's Leading critic of genetically modified crops, has written a lively and comprehensive field guide to this treacherous new landscape that both citizens and consumers will find indispensable." - Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and Botany of Desire

"The genetic manipulators are not merely messing with your food; they're messing with you, your children, your environment. Kimbrell's book and handy shopping guide gives you what you need to fight back. Digest this book...And go forth!" - Jim Hightower, populist, best-selling author, columnist, and radio commentator

"This book will be an invaluable resource to the American public in understanding the hazards of genetically engineered foods. Their informed choice to avoid these foods will have a positive impact on our farms, communities, and biodiversity worldwide." - Dr. Vandana Shiva, founder and director of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology and author of Earth Democracy: Justice, Sustainability, and Peace

    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!
