The book addresses some fundamental and profound questions such as: Are GM foods safe to eat? What do consumers think about GM foods and, alternatively, organic produce? What are the real risks of genetic pollution? And is it appropriate to delete a supposed gene for sadness? "Recoding Nature" challenges the assumptions of those preparing the world for a 'recoded' DNA future.
