Praise for Shen Ming Lee's Hungry For Disruption

“Shen Ming Lee skillfully shows that a key to food sustainability in the 21st century is advancing food technology so we can produce more with less. If you love delicious food and want there to be enough for everyone, Lee asks you to cheer on the scientists who are working hard to keep us fed while leaving a lighter footprint on our planet.”
