About this book

BBC broadcaster Humphrys asks whether, by consuming genetically-modified foods, we are putting our health at risk and betraying our children by squandering our rich agricultural heritage. He looks at the growth of factory farming over the past fifty years and at how successive governments have turned a blind eye to its devastating effects.
