Technical Abstract: This is a review of a book entitled 'Genetically Modified Crops: Assessing Safety' by Keith. T. Atherton. If you want to learn more about the regulations, methods, and data available to assess the safety of genetically modified organisms consumed by humans and some not-target organisms, this book will definitely educate you. If you are primarily interested in the environmental impact of genetically modified crops this book will disappoint you.
