Dr Mae-Wan Ho is a well known and respected British scientist, Reader in Biology at the Open University and Fellow of the US National Genetics Foundation. She has debated the issues involved in genetic engineering at the United Nations, the World Bank, the European Parliament and many international conferences. She is widely in demand as a broadcaster and lecturer. Since 1994, she has been scientific advisor to the Third World Network on genetic engineering, biotechnology and biosafety. Apart from these complaints and all the chapters on "genetic determinism" this book is informative and a good book. She does make a lot of good points, but why this continual stuff about Darwinism? If it wasn't for Darwinism maybe we would have no idea of the irreversible damage GM can do.

Since its first publication in 1998, Mae-Wan Ho's book, Genetic Engineering: Dream or Nightmare? has been widely acknowledged as providing the most sustained and reasoned challenge to many of the scientific assumptions underlying genetic engineering. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho is a respected British scientist, reader in Biology at the Open University and fellow of the US National Genetics Foundation. She is widely in demand as a lecturer and broadcaster.
The Brave New World of Science and Business. ISBN13: 9780826412577. Genetic Engineering -Dream or Nightmare? : Turning the tide on the Brave New World of Bad Science and Big Business. While Dr. Ho's book is indeed a warning about the hazards and inequities involved in uncontrolled and exploitative genetic engineering, it is also one of the most incisive and well-informed critiques of the orthodox neo-Darwinian model of evolution by chance mutation and natural selection, addressing head-on the popular myths propagated by writers such as Jacques Monod, Richard Dawkins and.

Mae-Wan Ho 1 December 1999. Thank you very much for inviting me here and thank you all for being here. I am very honored, especially to be in a session moderated by Senator Dennis Kucinich who has introduced such an important bill for labeling genetic engineered foods to the US Congress. The Brave New World of Bad Science and Big Business. I am here on behalf of more than 140 scientists from 27 countries to deliver an open letter to all government delegates at the WTO, calling for a moratorium on genetic engineered crops and products because they are dangerous, and for patents on life-forms and living processes to be revoked and banned because they are deeply immoral. Genetic engineering agriculture is a dangerous diversion and obstruction to the real tasks of providing food and health around the world.
