Lisa Weasel, professor of molecular biology at Portland State University, will talk about her book, Food Fray: Inside the Controversy over Genetically Modified Foods,and lead a conversation about this important issue. "Dr. Weasel offers an eye-opening account of the murky terrain where science, ethics, and politics have intersected throughout modern history in the life of genetically modified (GM) foods - from the GM frenzy in Europe and U.S. food aid in Africa to hormone-treated milk and biofuel here in the United States. Reading Food Fray feels like listening to a friend explain lucidly what you could never grasp in a way that feels honest and forthright." (Edible Portland, Winter 2009).
