Genetically Engineered Food: Changing the Nature of Nature
Martin Teitel Ph.D.
Park Street Press
Please read this for yourself and your loved ones!
Did you know that there are tomatoes on the market right now that have been engineered to contain the genes of arctic fish? Know anyone with a fish allergy? Or that the proliferation or GM foods threatens the existence of "organic" foods and your right to choose? Cross-pollenation and genetic pollution of soil threaten the health of you, your family and our environment. This slim volume is a ...
Enough: Staying Human in an Engineered Age
St. Martin's Griffin
One point that has not been made yet which I feel is pertinent is the question of disease. Namely, what purpose has disease served in directing the adaptation of humans? This needs to be considered by pathologists and geneticists alike. Genetically engineering resistance to known diseases will not protect future humans from all diseases. On the contrary, such a poorly thought-out removal of ...
Genetically Engineered Food (At Issue Series)
Diane Andrews Henningfeld
Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods
Jeffrey M. Smith
Excellent, if just for the references alone!
This is an excellent companion to The Gmo Trilogy, for readers who wish to go into greater depth. The book explores possible medical risks associated with eating genetically modified foods, and comprises 1-2 page abstracts and essays by researchers. There are a lot more hypotheses than actual conclusions here, so none of these works have reached the stage of becoming peer-reviewed articles in ...
Genetically Engineered Food: A Self-Defense Guide for Consumers
Da Capo Press
A Book that Needed to be Written
I knew instinctively that I was against GE foods, and absolutely in favor of mandatory labeling of GE foods, but I did not know the actual facts behind the argument against GE foods. This book lays out those facts clearly. The authors make no attempt to hide the fact that they are against GE foods, but they do not let their bias get in the way of their reporting of the facts. There's no ...
Shedding Light on Genetically Engineered Food: What You Don?t Know About the Food You?re Eating and What You ...
Beth H Harrison
Great Book that everyone needs to read
This book provides interesting information I hadn't read anywhere else. It is easy to read (for the average person who is not a scientist) and shows how it affects me and my family. It made me think twice about what I buy at the grocery store and what my children are eating. Not only did it present the disturbing reality about genetically engineered food and how we have all been kept in ...
Rex Roberts' Your Engineered House
Little Brown & Company
My review is based solely on the 1964 original
A friend tendered Rex Roberts' book to me in the mid-1970s as I began to consider building a passive solar house. What Mr. Roberts taught me carried me through to the completion of a successful building project in Charleston, SC facing the Intracoastal Waterway, just off Folly Road, Nr. One Tranquil Drive. The house worked for both cooling and heating. It still does although later owners have ...
Engineered Transparency: The Technical, Visual, and Spatial Effects of Glass
Princeton Architectural Press
Any college-level arts library strong in architecture needs this
Glass has become a major feature of modern architectural technical advances, offering enhanced thermal properties, structural innovations, and new installation limits. Professor Michael Bell and publications director Jeannie Kim blend forces to collect essays and technical illustrations paired with a DVD featuring highlights from a seminar in engineered transparency glass, with chapters packing ...
Genetically Engineered Foods: Are They Safe? You Decide.
Ph.D. Robin Ticciati
A little book with a big wake up message
Food technology has turned much of what we eat in this country into artificial, processed, chemicalized mishmash. No wonder forty percent of the population is sick! Now comes the latest insult -- genetically engineered food. You won't know that you are eating it because the government doesn't require food manufacturers/producers to specially label GE food nor does it require any independent ...

Friends In High Places: The Bechtel Story : The Most Secret Corporation and How It Engineered the World
SECRETS AND FRIENDS: THE BECHTEL ADVANTAGES!!
Laton McCartney has torn the cover off of the Bechtel Group and given us insight into one of the most successful, most influential, and most controversial mega-businesses in the history of the planet earth. A giant octopus with tentacles everywhere imaginable, plunking down projects, and sucking up billions of private and public funds, all over the world. We hear lots about Halliburton and it's ...
Priests and Programmers: Technologies of Power in the Engineered Landscape of Bali
J. Stephen Lansing
Princeton University Press
Vital coverage of development, technology, society, states
Lansing shows, through Balinese irrigation, that technology is simultaneously social and political, but often not in the ways imagined by Western academics and development experts. A dispersed system of water temples and priests successfully managed the irrigation of multiple valleys and plots through a process in which ritual served the regulatory function of feedback. Development projects ...
A Brand New Bird: How Two Amateur Scientists Created The First Genetically Engineered Animal
Tim Birkhead (2003): A Brand-New Bird
"A Brand-new Bird" is the entertaining story of how two German bird lovers spent most of their spare and life time experimenting to create a red canary. Hans Duncker (1881-1961) and Karl Reich (1885-1970) had in common a keen interest in bird breeding. Duncker, however, had been the more academic of both and is considered as one of the first avian geneticists. Reich on the other hand had highly ...
Building with Engineered Lumber (For Pros By Pros)
absolutely packed with tips
This book is only 128 pages, but I would have gotten my money's worth from 10 pages. Absolutely packed with information, amply illustrated, and even includes lots of information on metal framing connectors. The book addresses it all, from floors to walls and roofs, beams and posts, LVL, LSL, PSL, Glulams, I-joists (and I've got all of them except glulams in my new addition) My main ...
Sulphate-Reducing Bacteria: Environmental and Engineered Systems
Cambridge University Press
The sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) are a large group of anaerobic organisms that play an important role in many biogeochemical processes. Not only are they of early origins in the development of the biosphere, but their mechanisms of energy metabolism shed light on the limits of life processes in the absence of oxygen. They are widely distributed in nature, and are regular components of engineered systems including, for example, petroleum ...

Genetically Engineered Mice Handbook (Research Methods For Mutant Mice)
While mice have always been highly popular laboratory subjects, their suitability for genetic engineering has solidified their position as today's lab animal model of choice. However, their increased use in genetic studies has created a demand for input on phenotyping that is not always easily met. To improve the flow of information on the pathology of mice with spontaneous or genetically engineered mutations, prominent researchers ...
