Item description for Your Right to Know: Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food by Andrew Kimbrell & Nell Newman...

More than half of America's processed grocery products — from corn flakes to granola bars to diet drinks — contain genetically altered ingredients. They are unlabeled and untested, and we are eating them. Your Right to Know is a complete, full-color reference guide outlining how unmarked genetically modified foods go from the factory to the family dining table, and what consumers can do about the health risks they present. This accessible guide is for concerned parents — as well as anyone concerned about genetically altered foods — who want to know more about the potential health risks, the organic alternatives, and the methods available to counter the corporate takeover of the food we eat.

Reviews - What do customers think about Your Right to Know: Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food?

Your Right To Know  Mar 8, 2008
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. There are so many people who are completely clueless about the foods they're purchasing at the food chains these days. Times have changed from the way our food was back in the day. They where REAL. What disturbs me with the media is that they are continueously advertising for us to buy these products that we think are REAL FOODS. Could it be that they are not aware? Or is it all about the $$$?
ABSOLUTE 'MUST READ'!  Jan 20, 2008
A good 'primer' on "Industrial greed, incompetence and criminal behavior".
Very informative. A real 'eye-opener'.
you are what you eat  Nov 16, 2007
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!
