For Rees (former editor of GM Watch's Weekly Watch), the debate over agricultural genetic engineering (which should really be properly labeled "genetic tinkering") can be boiled down to the simple statement that: "We risk potential health, environmental, and agronomic calamities just so that a handful of corporations can sate their voracious appetite for profit by patenting the seeds of the very food we eat, and then go on to control the global food chain." Unfortunately, he argues, this simple common sense has been made the victim of a sophisticated corporate public relations campaign that has obscured the dangers of genetic engineering from the public and influenced the media and the government so that they fail to act in the public's interests in this matter. This book, then, is as much about exposing how corporations have acted to further their genetics engineering agenda in the interests of profit as it is about describing for a general audience the scientific evidence concerning the likely harms of genetic engineering.
