CitationALICE AND THE FRANKENFOODS: A WELL REGULATED WONDERLAND? (2003 Third Year Paper)
AbstractThis paper uses fiction to illuminate anxieties associated with the substances that sustain, nourish and transform us, and to consider the impact of consumer perceptions on the regulatory balances that must be struck between nature and technology, and between cultural concerns and scientific methods. It explores as a case study the FDAâ€™s labeling regulations as applied to food crops developed using gene manipulation techniques, and touches on the FDAâ€™s appropriate role as a consumer advisor.
