THE FUTURE OF FOOD
Brian J. Ford

Our future depends on food: it controls our health, underpins social structures, and helps dictate the political agenda. Among the crucial issues discussed in this challenging study of food by the eminent biologist Brian J. Ford are new food-borne diseases and the dietary needs of the young, the elderly, and women. He examines the complex questions of genetically modified food and provides important insights into food intolerance and life-threatening allergies, the relationship between food and culture, organic farming, the impact of climate change, and how revolutionary new foods will change the world.

Brian J. Ford is author of the best-selling Microbiology and Food. He is a Fellow of Cardiff University, a member of the Advisory Board of the McCrone Research Institute in Chicago and of the New York Academy of Sciences, and he lectures regularly in the United States.

Prospects for Tomorrow: A new series of books, edited by Yorick Blumenfeld, on the most important issues for our future, including ethics and science, poverty, the environment, computers, violence, work, leisure, and the arts.
