Is your food safe? In this book you’ll discover what the biotech industry doesn’t want you to know.
This book reveals how industry manipulation and political collusion, not sound science, allow dangerous genetically engineered food into your daily diet.
Company research is rigged, alarming evidence of health dangers is covered up, and intense political pressure applied. Chapters read like adventure stories: Scientists were offered bribes or threatened. Evidence was stolen. Data was omitted and distorted. Government employees who complained were harassed, stripped of responsibilities or fired. Laboratory rats fed a GM crop developed stomach lesions and seven of forty died within two weeks. The crop was approved without further tests. When a top scientist tried to alert the public about his alarming discoveries, he lost his job and was silenced with threats of a lawsuit.
Read actual internal memos by FDA scientists, warning of toxins, allergies and new diseases–all ignored by their superiors, including a former attorney for Monsanto. Discover how industry studies are designed to avoid finding problems. Learn why the FDA withheld information from Congress after a genetically modified supplement killed nearly a hundred people and disabled thousands.
