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.
