So long as you have food in your mouth, you have solved all questions for the time being. So begins Good Enough to Eat? by Professor Ian Godwin (UQ), which challenges Kafka’s culinary sentiments and proceeds to unravel our complex and deeply personal relationship with food.
Including interviews from both sides of the (farmyard) fence; from biologists to farmers and nutritionists to activists, Good Enough to Eat? charts the history of GM foods from the laboratory to the global dinner plate. Equally informative and entertaining, Godwin chronicles the social, political and philosophical arguments for and against GM crops, and the science and knowledge behind the battle for global food security and sustainability.
I’ll be moderating an expert panel to discuss Ian Godwin’s exciting new book and the concepts (and misconceptions) of GM.
