Acceptable Genes?: Religious Traditions and Genetically Modified Foods (Suny Series on Religion and the Environment)

by

Acceptable Genes?: Religious Traditions and Genetically Modified Foods (Suny Series on Religion and the Environment) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

At the supermarket, modern biotechnology has surpassed science fiction with such feats as putting fish genes in tomatoes to create a more cold-resistant crop. While the environmental and health concerns over such genetically modified foods have been the subject of public debate, religious and spiritual viewpoints have been given short shrift. This book seeks to understand the moral and religious attitudes of groups within pluralistic societies whose traditions and beliefs raise for them unique questions about food and dietary practice.
