Book Description

Monsanto—one of the largest agriculture and biotech companies in the world—creates genetically engineered seeds and food, or GMOs. They've also brought the world toxic chemicals like DDT, PCBs and even Agent Orange.

But who is Monsanto really—and why do many see them as one of the most evil companies in the world? Are GMOs and genetically engineered food the solution to world hunger, or a shockingly dangerous threat to our health? And does Monsanto really, as some suggest, secretly control much of the United States' agriculture and food departments? What are they hiding from the public?

This meticulously researched, short book strips away the myths and reveals the shocking reality—and provides you with the information you need to keep you and your family healthy.

All of these questions rocketed to the forefront of the American dialogue when Barack Obama signed into law the Farmer Assurance Provision, or "Monsanto Protection Act"—which critics claimed would give Monsanto immunity from the federal government. "Monsanto vs. the World" puts to rest the myths and shows the shocking reality, delving into the science of GMOs, the political machinations of Monsanto in Washington and around the world, and showing what you can do to keep GMOs off your plate.

In Monsanto vs. the World, which cites nearly one hundred scholarly journals, books, studies, articles and even Monsanto's own documents, you'll discover the details of:

• Monsanto's long history of creating—and covering up the effects of—toxic chemicals and weapons
• Monsanto's powerful lobby that has tendrils in the FDA, the USDA, the EPA—and even the White House
• What GMOs and genetically engineered organisms are—and how they may be hazardous to your health
• How Monsanto is using GMOs to suppress small farmers and invade the world
• How to keep GMOs off your plate and make sure you're eating fresh and healthy food

For less than the price of a lunch, get the crucially important information that will change how you see your food forever—and that will keep you and your family eating healthy instead of GMO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, succinct, and informative April 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mr. Louv gives his readers the lowdown on corporate monsters like Monsanto and the big business of genetically-modified seeds. As always, his writing is clear, focused, and balanced. He is the Upton Sinclair of 2013, and I look forward to more of his reportage into these hard-hitting areas of social concern.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful, thorough, and damning. April 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Jason Louv breaks down the hoopla with reasoned research. The book clarifies each phase of scandal surrounding Monsanto's career from DDT to Biotech and suggests individual actionable solutions. Mr. Louv wisely addresses the less substantiated claims against Monsanto, which makes his argument all the stronger. Highly recommended to fans of the Disinformation Company, VICE, and people who want the best information available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is there real evil? February 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My feelings about multi national corporations are well known and they aren't positive. But are they evil or just self serving? Most would seem to be the latter. The outside view might seem evil but really., they don't care and are doing all they can to make a profit. While not applaudable, at least understandable. Monsanto, on the other hand is the very definition of evil. They not only do all they can to make a profit - but care not one whit who they hurt in the process. Further, they take direct aim at their competitors in a manner that specifically hurts folks exposed.
Through the revolving door that leads from corporate leadership to government lawmaker - where they can specifically engineer rules that benefit the same corporation they left (or plan to go to) - and back to corporate life, these rich thugs impose their will on everyone. Creating crops that absorb their weed killers as a means to become immune to them, those crops then pass that stored poison on to the folks that consume them.
Look at photos of Americans 30 or 40 years ago. We weren't fat. How many kids had autism? How many of us died from cancers? All of these things have increased dramatically since the introduction of GMO's.
Most of us will do nothing. The government and their cronies in the corporate boardrooms plan on that. Some will write books. And hopefully some will resist money and make laws. There is a reason most of the world rejects GMO'S and Monsanto's hold. Maybe you should read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbiased and Helpful Treatment September 9, 2013
By Kenneth
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a lawyer and also the author of Bless the Bees I naturally wanted to check out the top ten seller in the category of biotechnology. My book has a chapter dedicated to GMOs and a discussion on the Monsanto Protection Act, which I believe is unconstitutional. It is a short read, in the journalistic style, which presents an unbiased view (not like my book). I did not know that, in addition to DDT, PCB and Agent Orange, that Monsanto was tapped by the government to help with the creation of the atomic bomb. That was a new one for me. It was also interesting to see their lobbying spending statistics-that had never been quantified for me before. They didn't strike me as too overwhelming, given the fact that they have so much power in the government. I liked the discussion in the revolving door, and Michael Taylor is one of the best examples of its use in government today (he is also featured in my book). I think I would have preferred for the author to take a definitive stand, but, then again, the journalist background and treatment is something which I think makes this book appealing.

Extremely eye opening and informative. I did not know a whole lot about GMO's before reading this book; now I feel like I have a basic understanding of the types of chemicals being put into our food.
