GM Crops and the Global Divide

Jennifer Thomson

GM Crops and the Global Divide examines global attitudes and the impact that anti-GM crop attitudes have on nutrition security in developing countries. It traces historical influences, aid, trade and educational involvement, and provides an update for scientists, regulatory authorities, decision makers and the interested public on the current status of GM crops in both developed and developing countries.

This book challenges all to consider new scientific advances as they emerge and embrace them where appropriate to help overcome the hardships of today, and especially climate changes and the need to use less land and fewer inputs to feed ourselves.
