Agricultural biotechnology and quality of life: What counts as quality?

Other Titles

Abstract

Achieving food security is a necessary condition of quality of life, and improvements in this may at the same time constitute an improvement in quality of life, but they are not sufficient. Quality of life, which is distinguishable from “standard of living,” cannot be reduced to food security or to discussions of wealth and poverty. Even on a well-being account of quality of life, there are other factors to consider.
