Will Saletan writes about politics, science, technology, and other topics of general interest for Slate Magazine. This is a link to his GMO article that he spent one year researching. It is comprehensive and is his answer to the question: “Is genetically engineered food dangerous?”
Slate Magazine is noted for its contrarian stances. Slate’s editor-in-chief Julia Turner says: "We are not looking to argue that up is down and black is white for the sake of being contrarian against all logic or intellectual rigor. But journalism is more interesting when it surprises you either with the conclusions that it reaches or the ways that it reaches them."
Will Saletan writes, “If you’re like me, you don’t really want to wade into this issue. It’s too big, technical, and confusing. But come with me, just this once. I want to take you backstage, behind those blanket assurances about the safety of genetic engineering. I want to take you down into the details of four GMO fights, because that’s where you’ll find truth. You’ll come to the last curtain, the one that hides the reality of the anti-GMO movement. And you’ll see what’s behind it.” His article.
