Genetically modified food has become in the past few years a portent symbol of the dangers inherent in technology and science and their commitment to "progress". The issues that have been raised foreshadow a greater ethical problem and fundamental philosophical impasse that is likely to arise, as science fact becomes more and more to resemble science fiction. Donna Haraway has taken in her work the implications involved for humanity, and for feminism in particular, this ever nearing synthesis of the human and the artificial. George Myerson examines the media hype in the light of Haraway's unrepentantly post-modern, but critical work, becoming ever more essential as we watch technology engulf our lives.

The scene for the encounter is the book which Haraway published in 1997, with the weird title: Modest Witnessnd Millennium. FemaleMan Meets OncoMouse.

Genetically modified food refers to foodstuffs that have been produced from organisms where their genetic structure has been adjusted or altered from that which would occur naturally. Techniques to alter the genetic makeup of an animal or plant, or to transfer genetic sequence from one organism to another, have been developed and marketed since the last decade of the 20th century.

Genetically modified foods are something that inspires passions on both sides of the debate. On one side of the equation, foods that have been genetically modified can be grown in a number of different non-traditional locations and provide higher yields. This means that more people can be fed and world hunger can potentially be eliminated. On the other end of the spectrum is the fact that food allergies are dramatically on the rise and the genetic modifications to food are thought to be at least partially to blame
