MODIFIED is "accessible, well-researched, and damning" on GMOs
Caitlin Shetterly’s MODIFIED: GMOs and the Threat to Our Food, Our Land, Our Future is out today from Putnam!
Most of us know that there’s a debate raging about GMOs in this country. It’s such a heated topic that talking about it is like trying to get Democrats and Republicans to have a civil conversation. But many people have only a murky understanding of genetically modified foods, at best. MODIFIED is a disquieting and meditative look at the issue that started the biggest food fight of our time. From a journalist and mother who learned that genetically modified corn was the culprit behind what was making her and her child sick, a must-read book for anyone trying to parse the incendiary discussion about genetically modified foods.
Some of the early praise:
