Biotechnology in Our Lives examines how these issues affect us daily whether we realize it or not. Written for the nonscientist, it looks at the many applications of genetics on the world around us by posing questions such as:
What should we know about genetics and childbirth?Can our genes keep us from qualifying for health insurance?Can gene therapy cure cancer?Is behavior genetically determined?Why would the FBI want our genes?Are foreign genes in our food?And much more
Ultimately, this definitive book on the subject also encourages us to think about the social, environmental, and moral ramifications of where this technology is taking us.
