Good Enough to Eat?: Next Generation GM Crops

January 30, 2019

So long as you have food in your mouth, you have solved all questions for the time being. So begins Good Enough to Eat?: Next Generation GM Crops, which challenges Kafka's culinary sentiments and proceeds to unravel our complex and deeply personal relationship with food.

The book is authored by Ian Godwin, Professor in Plant Molecular Genetics and Director of Centre for Crop Science at The University of Queensland. It is published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, and includes interviews from both sides of the (farmyard) fence; from biologists to farmers and nutritionists to activists, charting the history of GM foods from the laboratory to the global dinner plate. 

The author chronicles the social, political and philosophical arguments for and against GM crops, and the science and knowledge behind the battle for global food security and sustainability.
