The world's first cookbook featuring only GM ingredients will soon
be on the shelves.

How about a bowl of genetically modified (GM) rice with a serving of GM tomato? The world's first cookbook featuring only GM ingredients, penned by an energetic champion of the controversial technology who is also a passionate cook, will soon be on the shelves. Beda Stadler, a researcher at Berne's Inselspital hospital, is fed up with people who brand GM products "Frankenfood"​ that may pose incalculable risks to the environment and human health. "No other food was genetically altered as much as our daily bread,"​ he said, noting that wheat developed from three different grasses whose genetic material managed to merge. His book, "Genes on the Fork,"​ is being published by InterNutrition, a group backed by a pro-GM lobbying group called the Swiss Working Group for Research and Nutrition.
