This chapter presents Kinsella's views about genetically modified foods. He argues that the modification of genes, the infiltrations of animal, human and plant DNA, open whole new territories for occupation and exploitation — creating new dimensions for contamination in the organism. To tamper with food sources in regards to living organisms is to deprive not only the organisms themselves of their rights, but also to colonise and control people on the most basic and fundamental level — in terms of what they eat and how they eat it.

Keywords:   John Kinsella, biotechnology, genetically modified foods
