The Suffering Gene book.

The Suffering Gene book. Details (if other): Cancel. Thanks for telling us about the problem. The Suffering Gene: Environmental Threats to Our Health.

This book outlines to the lay person what science now knows about how our genes are adversely affected by the modern environment in which we live. The author explains how our genes work, and how they are adversely impacted by many different factors in modern society.

Genetic engineering is new threat to sportwas a recent headline in a local newspaper

Genetic engineering is new threat to sportwas a recent headline in a local newspaper. The article’s author was genuinely concerned at the spectre of a nightmare team of genetically engineered giant basketball players, or squad of sprinters who could make present world record holders look puny and pedestrian.

Environmental Threats to Our Health. Published October 24, 2003 by Zed Books.

From gender-bending chemicals to genetic engineering, free radicals to mobile phones, this is as honest, clear and salutary a guide as you will find. More perspectives from the front line, this time of ecology, in Edward Wilson’s latest prizewinner, The Future of Life (Abacus, £. 9).

This book explains how our genes work, and how they are adversely impacted by a huge range of factors in modern society in both the countries of the North and the South. These include toxic industrial and agricultural chemicals, excessive sunlight (as a result of the hole in the ozone layer), nuclear radiation from power plants and the military, as well as other forms of radiation (mobile phones, electricity transmission systems and the like), food contaminants, atmospheric pollutants (including things like tobacco smoke and car exhaust fumes), and the potential impact of genetic engineering.
