Title:
Genetically modified theology: The religious dimensions of public concerns about agricultural biotechnology
Authors:
Deane-Drummond, Celia; Grove-White, Robin; Szerszynski, Bronislaw
Abstract:
This book chapter discusses human issues raised by genetically modified foods. The authors argue that public anxiety over GM foods has been misunderstood - public reaction can be seen as reasonable rather than irrational and emotional, concerns relate to the level of ontology and theology rather than physical health, and people are concerned about the spirit in which GM technology is being developed. The article includes analysis from focus groups.
