Your Right to Know

Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food

Written By: Andrew Kimbrell
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, untested and we are eating it. Your Right to Know is a complete, full-color reference guide outlining how unmarked genetically modified foods get on to the family dining table and what consumers can do about it. This definitive and accessible guide is for concerned parents, as well as the entire consumer population, who want to know more about the potential health risks, the organic options and shopping choices, and the knowledge and methods available to counter the corporate takeover of the food we eat.
