Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us?
In autumn 2006 an unnerving phenomenon hit the United States: honeybees were mysteriously disappearing from hives across the nation, with beekeepers reporting losses of between 30 and 90 per cent of their entire colonies. The problem soon spread to parts of Europe and even Asia, earning the name Colony Collapse Disorder. To this day nobody is absolutely sure why it is happening and what the exact causes are. However, in 1923 Rudolf Steiner, a ...

Genetically Modified Organisms: Opening Pandora's Box with Genetically Modified Food
Choice PH, 2013
Genetically modified foods are foods produced from organisms that have had specific changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. These techniques have allowed for the introduction of new crop traits as well as far greater control over a food's genetic structure than previously afforded by methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding. This eBook highlights the history of genetic engineering and the ...
Mass Deception: Moral Panic and the U.S. War on Iraq (Critical Issues in Crime and Society)
Professor Scott A. Bonn
Rutgers University Press
The attacks of 9/11 led to a war on Iraq, although there was neither tangible evidence that the nation's leader, Saddam Hussein, was linked to Osama bin Laden nor proof of weapons of mass destruction. Why, then, did the Iraq war garner so much acceptance in the United States during its primary stages? Mass Deception argues that the George W. Bush administration manufactured public support for the war on Iraq. Scott A. Bonn introduces a ...
Safe Food: Bacteria, Biotechnology, and Bioterrorism (California Studies in Food and Culture, 5)
University of California Press
Food safety is a matter of intense public concern, and for good reason. Millions of annual cases of food "poisonings" raise alarm not only about the food served in restaurants and fast-food outlets but also about foods bought in supermarkets. The introduction of genetically modified foods—immediately dubbed "Frankenfoods"—only adds to the general sense of unease. Finally, the events of September 11, 2001, heightened fears by exposing the ...

Shedding Light on Genetically Engineered Food: What You Don’t Know About the Food You’re Eating and What ...
The evidence is clear and overwhelming: genetically engineered food is big business, a profitable product on the global market, and as a $6.15 billion industry in 2006, its growth and corporate power are undeniable. Despite the United States government and biotechnology industry's assertion that genetically engineered food is harmless, Americans must question its safety. The truth is that genetically engineered food has never been tested for ...

Dinner at the New Gene Cafe: How Genetic Engineering Is Changing What We Eat, How We Live, and the Global ...
St. Martin's Griffin
Biotech companies are racing to alter the genetic building blocks of the world's food. In the United States, the primary venue for this quiet revolution, the acreage of genetically modified crops has soared from zero to 70 million acres since 1996. More than half of America's processed grocery products-from cornflakes to granola bars to diet drinks-contain gene-altered ingredients. But the U.S., unlike Europe and other democratic nations, does ...
First Fruit: The Creation of the Flavr Savr Tomato and the Birth of Biotech Foods
In 1994 a little biotech firm called Calgene introduced the Flavr Savr (TM) tomato, the first genetically engineered food ever brought to market. Like most scientists working in agricultural biotechnology, the people who created the Flavr Savr (TM) hoped eventually to develop more important crops, ones that would be higher yielding or insect and disease resistant, thus enabling farmers to feed more people and reduce their dependence on dangerous ...
Process Techniques for Engineering High-Performance Materials
Most processed materials retain a memory of their production process at the molecular level. Subtle changes in production—such as variations in temperature or the presence of impurities—can impart performance benefits or drawbacks to individual batches of products. Some product developers have taken advantage of this process dependency to tailor properties to specific customer needs. In other cases, poorly engineered processes have resulted ...
