Most people don't know what's in the food they eat every day. Although the recognized brands of packaged and processed foods, salad dressings, canned goods, soft drinks, snack foods, and so on may look the same as always, in many cases their contents have radically changed. They now contain something new and unfamiliar: genetically engineered ingredients. "Genetically Altered Foods and Your Health" examines how genetic engineering is radically changing our food-at great risk to human health and the environment. Why are scientists genetically altering foods? Are they safe? Why aren't genetically engineered foods labeled as such? Author Ken Roseboro addresses these and other issues concerning genetically altered foods, and explains why organic foods are practical and safe alternatives to this risky technology.
