Item Description...
Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates has declared that if he could do it over again, he'd be "working in biotechnology." That's because no area of science is moving faster nor will have a greater impact. BioEvolution is the first book to explain what biotechnology is all about and to describe the amazing scientific advances that have already been made. Fumento shows how biotechnology is changing our lives and will do so even more dramatically in the near future. Reporting from the ground zero of experimentation and clinical trials, Fumento shows how biotechnology has already demonstrated the potential to cure almost any disease, extend human lifespans well past the 120-year range, and wipe out not only famine but malnutrition while using less land, less water, and fewer chemicals. He discusses the miracle drugs and treatments in the biotechnology pipeline-scientific innovations that will change medicine over the next decades, eliminating diseases such as diabetes, AIDS, and Alzheimer's and making cancer into a manageable disorder rather than a death sentence. Living up to the reputation as a "myth buster" he has acquired as a result of his work unmasking "junk science," Fumento also sorts out science from non-science and nonsense. He shows, for instance, that the bitter fight over embryonic stem cells is a distraction from wonders already being performed with non-embryonic adult stem cells. He counters both the emotional and scientific claims against so-called "Frankenfood" and shows how it will help feed a hungry planet. BioEvolution is science fact. The biotechnical advances it describes are already happening and will come to fruition in the next decade. Michael Fumento shows that the future is now.

Monsanto paid Fumento $60,000 to write this book.  Aug 4, 2006
Business Week reported that Fumento had solicited money from Monsanto to support a book on biotechnology that he proposed to write. Monsanto paid $60,000 to the Hudson Institute think tank, where Fumento is a fellow, most of which, Fumento said, was "folded into" his salary. Fumento's book BioEvolution praises Monsanto's work in biotechnology; he has also written columns praising Monsanto.

Setting the Record Straight  Jul 6, 2006
Just to clarify, Michael Fumento is *not* an employee of Monsanto, nor did Monsanto pay him $60,000 to write this book.

What really happened is much more benign: In 1999, Monsanto gave a book grant to Fumento's employer, which like all think tanks, applied the grant to the pre-established salaries of its employees (Fumento included). Fumento made no attempt to hide this fact; he openly acknowledged it when asked point-blank by a business reporter in December 2005.

The reporter went on to create a pseudo-scandal out of the admission, and Fumento's column was subsequently dropped by Scripps-Howard. Since then, Fumento's critics (among them Jim Lund) have disingenuously twisted the facts surrounding the case to make it seem like something it wasn't.

An ad paid for by the biotech industry  Jan 15, 2006
The author was paid $60,000 by Monsanto to write this book and hid this from his readers and the news service that he worked for. When the facts came out that he is a shill rather than a journalist he was fired in Jan '06. So is the book accurate? I don't know in detail, but keep in mind if you read it that is the work of a Monsanto employee rather than an impartial author trying to inform you.
useful information but bias makes difficult to interpret  Nov 29, 2005
I was reading this book in the hope to expand my knowledge of the field. Unfortunately while there is useful information presented the author is so one-eyed that it is impossible to know what is truth and what is his slant on the subject matter. A bit more knowledge and a lot less bias would make this a far better book. I must admit I found it very hard to read the book - not because of the subject (which is interesting) of even the writing style but the entirely one sided approach taken meant that nothing stated could be trusted without independent collaboration and this is very annoying. His argument does not need propaganda but carefully researched information - which unfortunately this is not. A lot of information is buried in here if you know what to look for it. A lot of scepticism while reading this book is necessary (unfortunately).
A good overview but be skeptical of the details and bias  Jan 11, 2005
I am a biomedical scientist. Although I am very familiar with my immediate field (vaccine design), I simply cannot keep up with the pace of biotechnology. For this reason I did find this book useful by providing an overview of biotechnology. I do warn non-scientist readers though. It is very obvious that Michael Fumento is not a scientist and does not understand the basic principles of biology. As just one example, DNA is not made up of two strands of protein, as stated on page 10. His lack of a biology background is further reiterated by the lack of references to primary scientific literature. I would gather that he is not comfortable with interpreting such literature. This is unfortunate as this is a requirement for someone to write authoritively on such a subject. For these reasons, I would not take most of his "conclusions" seriously. There is a tremendous amount of bias in this book and it is not well founded with a good understanding of biological concepts. I did use several of his references as a starting point to do my own literature research to better understand areas of biotechnology.
