Don't Worry, It's Safe to Eat

Investigative journalist and PR Watch contributor Andrew Rowell's new book, Don't Worry -- It's Safe to Eat, exposes the hidden links between scientists, corporations and the government that have warped policy on three potent issues: genetic engineering (GE), BSE and Foot and Mouth disease. Rowell documents how politicians and corporate spin doctors have twisted the public health debate, allowing for inadequate and flawed regulation of the food industry. As Britain decides whether to become a biotech nation or go GE free, Rowell tells how intense corporate pressure via the White House got respected scientist Arpad Pusztai fired for saying on national British television that he won't eat his GE potatoes.
