Biotechnology has a significant impact on both medicine and agriculture. With the introduction of new products to the marketplace, the safety of those products is of paramount importance. New safety evaluation strategies are now employed to ensure that the consumer is adequately protected. This book describes those strategies and addresses some of the key advances that have been made in agrochemical biotechnology. Genetically Modified Crops: Assessing Safety covers biotechnology's uses in agriculture, regulations on novel foods, and numerous case studies in safety evaluation. It also treats the issue of protein allergy. This volume will have a strong impact on the current debate over genetically-modified foods, and it will be a useful reference for all those working in the field.
