Is that Fish in your Tomato? The Fact and Fiction of GM Foods.
What is genetic modification? What does it truly mean for us and the world around us? What are the risks and benefits? And, what’s more, how does it even work?
The facts about GM are few and far between, but opinions from both sides of the debate are vocal and overpowering. Is that Fish in your Tomato? is a beacon through the noise, explaining the origins and science behind GM, the environmental uncertainties and the public health concerns which have opponents worried.
No stone is left unturned in Nesbit’s quest to explore the fact and fiction of genetic modification. In the process, she has created the quintessential, scientifically-informed guide to understanding the subject.
“Is That Fish in Your Tomato? is a sorely needed antidote to the seemingly endless tide of misinformation that has long engulfed the debate about GM crops. Clear-headed and with a strictly fact-based view of the issue, it highlights the complexities inherent in understanding the multiple ways in which plant genetic engineering can and has been used in the real world. If you want to get beyond post-truth on the issue of GMOs, Nesbit’s book is a great place to start.”
Mark Lynas, author, journalist and environmental activist
"In a world where science and nonsense are being rephrased as matters of freedom of speech, there is an urgent need for more books like this that really help to inform rather than dictate... for anyone who wants a proper reality check on all facets of this frustratingly controversial topic this book is a boon.”
Nessa Carey, author The Epigenetics Revolution
“The author has breathed a breath of fresh air into the still controversial and mythologized topic of genetic modification. If you want an accessible, balanced, and well-researched account of the pros and cons of GM technology, read this book.”
Professor John Lucas
