GMO products are among the most consumed and the least understood substances in the United States today. They appear not only in the food we eat but also in everything from the interior coating of paper coffee cups and medicines to diapers and toothpaste. An expansion of Shetterly's viral Elle article " The Bad Seed," Modified delves deep into the heart of the matter, from the cornfields of Nebraska to the beekeeping conventions in Brussels, to shine a light on the people, the science, and the corporations behind the food we serve ourselves and our families every day.
