This reads like a college essay from an undergraduate student NOT like it's coming from an expert.. because it's not. When I finished the book I saw it was written by a chef.

There weren't really any studies referenced or talked about in detail about genetically modified foods. I am getting my Dr. In chiropractic and I was looking forward to mention studies to support conclusions based on genetically modified foods.

This book though was really easy to read and I enjoyed the pace at which the author wrote. I learned a new term called permafrost, which basically means living in a sustainable way. I got this for free on Amazon, it was worth a few dollars more, but $5 would be too much.

It's okay. The author hits certain topics and raises questions about sustainability and GMO. It is a quick read if you are just learning about GMO crops, but not if you have already done in depth studies. It's a quick 5-10 min read that can't hurt you.

Genetically modified foods are a controversial subject. It generated many protest activities in America and Europe when it came on the scene but very little noise is heard about it nowadays. The authors of this book acknowledge that the major corporation in this field, Monsanto Chemicals has won the public relations battle.
However, the authors believe that it is worthwhile to try to make people aware of what they see as the dangers that genetically modified foods present. The company, Monsanto, claims that its method offers better jobs and lifestyles to medium sized and family farms.
The authors say that feedback from some farmers tells a different story. They commend Coca Cola of USA and Waitrose of the UK, two food manufacturing giants for taking alternate paths. For example, Waitrose highlights its method of food sourcing; in the interest of consumers. It tries to reassure them that their foods are safe. They also state that Monsanto has taken 112 farmers to court. Most have lost to the giant and had to pay large sums of money.
The authors believe that Monsanto is not giving customers all the facts and that not enough research, especially life-span research was done on genetically modified foods. They worry that their might be serious long term effects. This book is worth reading.

The info in this book confirmed things I have read about and hoped was not true. Information anyone interested in their health and all others should know about. It would open your eyes and stop you before you buy certain products, and really make you think about your health and well being and your families as well as people in general. Not a pretty picture but reality.

Not sure I understand the chapter about birth control in the middle of the book. It felt like it was off topic.

Nice little ebook that provides an overview of the debate surrounding genetically modified foods (a.k.a. GMOs) and living sustainably. Focused primarily on the benefits of a sustainable lifestyle, a few parts were bordering on cynicism -- but viewpoints from the other (pro-GMO) side were at least mentioned. Many interesting issues/ideas/details are discussed; like the fact that Agent Orange was created & produced by Monsanto?!

We need to start demanding more labels on our food that we consume. There are way too many loop holes where producers and manufacturing can make changes to our food supply and damage our health in the way we eat.

I enjoyed reading this book. It made some very valid arguments regarding GM foods vs. Sustainability. It has definitely piqued my interest and I plan to read up on the subjective more now.
