Modified: GMOs and the Threat to Our Food, Our Land, Our Future
by Caitlin Shetterly, 342 pages, 6¼x9¼, hardcover. Convinced that corn and corn derivatives were a source of the severe health problems she and her infant son experienced, Shetterly, with great difficulty, removed corn in all its forms from their diet. Their symptoms cleared up and Shetterly began to question whether it was corn that was the problem or GMO corn? Searching for answers led her to the heartland and to the heart of one the great religious arguments of our day. Each side has its true believers, those who know they are right and no amount of evidence can convince them of otherwise. Although firmly on the anti-GMO side, Shetterly does a wonderful job reporting on and humanizing the people she visits. She stays away from the corporate suites where the lies and the motivation are transparent and concentrates on the scientists and activists on both sides who are inextricably divided around a common goal—access to safe food for all. A necessary, if not exactly uplifting, read. -David Shipman
