About this book

The central thesis of this book is that the genetic structures of living beings are internal biological expressions of the ecosystems they need to survive. That is why living beings contribute to the production of ecosystems by their everyday acts of living, in a global-scale symbiosis. Inter-species genetic engineering creates new types of living beings, which could not arise naturally and which are being introduced without a sound understanding of their ecological impacts.
`Arjun Makhijani presents a deeper and scarier analysis of the threat which genetically engineered food poses to life on earth than criticisms of genetically engineered food to date. His work will open a new and more profound debate that calls into question the very nature of the agricultural biotech experiment now underway.' Brent Blackwelder, President, Friends of the Earth.
