Ethics of Biotech Foods — Genetically Modified, Synthetic, and Cloned

Over on my Business Ethics Blog, I’ve blogged quite a bit about ethical issues in food biotechnology over the last 3 years. It thought it might be useful to gather some of those blog entries together, here, for the convenience of those of you with an interest in the topic:

Pioneer’s Business Model for Genetically Modified Foods for Africa (March 2006)

GM Foods, the Environment, and Corporate Obligations (Dec. 2006)

Trans-fats vs. Genetically Modified Foods (Dec. 2006)

Monsanto, Argentina, and Trade in GM Crops (May 2006)

The Not-So-Simple Ethics of Biotech (April 2007)

Biotech: An Industry in SEARCH of Regulation (July 2007)

Ethics, the FDA, and Cloned Meat (Jan. 2008)

(Lilly) Buying Controversy (from Monsanto) (Aug 2008)

PETA’s Prize for Artificial Meat (Sept. 2008)

Sugar is Sugar (or, the Ethics of Caving in to Silly Demands) (Jan 2009)

And finally: Ben & Jerry’s Behind “Cyclone Dairy” (Apr. 2009)

(Keep in mind that those entries are from my Business Ethics Blog, so they’re primarily about corporate obligations, rather than, say, about public policy.)
