Describes the controversies surrounding the production of genetically modified foods.

Book News
Together with a science writer, Fedoroff (Pennsylvania State U.), a plant molecular biologist/geneticist, addresses the controversies raised by techniques for producing genetically modified (GM) foods--"Frankenfoods" to its critics. Noting that agriculture altered the genetic makeup of food crops long before the 19th-century monk Mendel ushered in the modern age of genetics, she discusses misinterpretations of scientific data and defends GM foods as actually a conservative approach to increasing the global food supply.
