ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY

Andrea, M., & Ezio, P. (2016). Genetically Modified Foods. Academic Press.The authors of the book focus are on the technologies whereby, genes are moved between unrelated species, a process that is referred to as gene engineering or gene technology. Additionally, they have stipulated how these technologies have led to the development of the genetically modified plants, which are disease tolerant and can resist abiotic stress. The article has proceeded to identify the critical purposes of genetically modified food technology, listing the essential types of genetically modified foods found in the stores and markets today. The writers were also keen to identify the geographic spread and the global volume of the genetically modified food across the globe. The authors also addressed the key concerns, particularly on the safety of these technologies, stating the environmental hazards that are associated with the consumption and production of these kinds of food. The book is an excellent reference, as it points out the negative side of the genetically modified foods.

Mahgoub, S. E. (2016). Genetically Modified Foods: Basics, Applications, and Controversy. CRC Press.The book details the basics and application of biotechnology, in the field as well as the laboratory. The book proceeds to provide a balanced presentation of the advantages and disadvantages of the genetically modified foods, outlining the arguments presented by the opponents and proponents of GM food. The authors present the reader with definitions of biotechnology, as well as the information on how biotechnology is employed to produce functional and nutraceutical foods and biofuels. The text also presents the reader with the global labeling, mandatory and non-mandatory issues of controversy, concern and consumer welfare. The ability of the book to provide a 360-degree review on the genetically modified foods makes it an essential reference, and also acts as a lens in helping one make an informed decision on the use of genetically modified foods.

Rees, A. (2006). Genetically Modified Food: A Short Guide for the Confused. Pluto Press.

The author of the book provides the readers with a perfect guide to any individual willing to know more about the genetically modified food. He outlines what these crops are, why they are used, the countries already using them, as well as the side effects of using these foods. In the book, the author can label the biotech industry as a failing industry and outlines the horrific tactics employed by the industry in its quest to take over.

Tutelyan, V. (2013). Genetically Modified Food Sources: Safety Assessment and Control. academic press.

In this book, the authors provide a detailed report on the results obtained from studies on the biological and medical safety of fourteen genetically modified species. The authors can focus on the genetically modified crops production. Also covered are the approaches employed to the subjective and medical assessments of the safety and control of the genetically modified foods. The authors also devote a particular chapter, where they outline the various problem associated with biological technologies.

Weasel, L. H. (2009). Food Fray: Inside the Controversy over Genetically Modified Food. Amacom-American Management Association.The book focuses its attention on the controversies and looks into every potential drawback of genetic modification. It outlines that genetic modification is not the answer to all problems, and farmers in various countries should not be coerced to purchase the seeds. The author, Dr. Weasel, takes on a journalist approach as she addresses the issue of genetic modification. She can treat both sides and does not lay her interest on either of the two parties. She favors interviews over empirical studies. The book is an excellent referencing point, as the author has invested her time in ensuring that the empirical studies are justified.
