Description: The idea that anyone might try to take out a patent on life or on any component of life fills most people with horror. McDonagh argues that the corporations who extend their control beyond agriculture and food are promoting biotechnology in agriculture even though many independent scientists have genuine fears about the safety of food produced by current genetic engineering technology. He shows how corporations stifle supervision by public authorities or criticism by the scientific community. “Patenting Life? Stop!” contends that the rush to patent life will devalue all life and, instead of feeding the world, will exacerbate hunger and malnutrition. The claim to patent life is a break with all previous cultural and religious traditions and an affront to them.
