Many scientists and farmers vigorously condemn the absence of independent, adequate testing. The Genetic Takeover casts a sober look at a potentially explosive situation. In response to consumer demands, many European and Asian countries have instituted mandatory labelling of genetically modified foods. North America, however, has been slow to react. In their relentless fight for profits, the industrial giants seem willing to ignore basic safety rules.
