520 |a Against the Grain slashes through biotechnology's propaganda, revealing the science and politics behind "transgenic" foods to show how biotech companies increasingly engineer what you eat to be compatible with their chemicals, but not necessarily good for human health. Marc Lappe and Britt Bailey reveal how companies like Monsanto, Dupont, Rhone-Poulenc and Dow have been introducing genes more to promote pesticides and build monopolies than to feed the world. In the words of the African delegation to the United Nations, "biotechnology companies have exploited the image of the poor and hungry to push a technology that is neither safe, environmentally friendly nor economically beneficial to us."Against the Grain will forever alter your walk down the supermarket aisles. Fortunately, Lappe and Bailey are breaking the silence cloaking the massive changes being made to the world's diet, giving consumers the information they need to decide for themselves.
