Most of us do not know what Genetically Modified Organisms are, let alone that they have been added to our diet, with potentially deadly results. As major food corporations have attempted to play God with our food supply, all in the name of more profits, they have made consumers their guinea pigs. Learn how these GMO's have not been thoroughly tested for long term affects on humans, yet have been allowed to be added to the U.S. food supply, though numerous countries worldwide have banned the same GMO's. There are also stories of scientists that have attempted to raise alerts regarding these GMO's and have been threatened for their efforts. All food is not created equal, and you need to learn why. Read this book.

Monsanto doesn't want you to read this book. They know you will be angry. And you will be totally right to be angry.

First of all, let's examine closely what a corporation like Monsanto is. Big corporations always try to get hold on a monopoly. The advantage of a monopoly is that the free market is eliminated. Think oil, central banks, patented drugs, patented pesticides, etc. More recently genetically modified seeds were developed, 75 % of which are engineered to withstand the otherwise deadly application of an herbicide - naturally : the brand the same corporation produces ("Roundup Ready"). Excellent news for stockholders of Monsanto, but what's in it for us, poor consumers ? Well, actually, as this book explains very well : absolutely nothing.

This was a huge challenge for the marketing department of Monsanto to start with. They try to sell us the idea that GM crops will "eliminate hunger in the Third World". This is absurd : hunger is not caused by lack of food, but by its unequal distribution. Therefore, the Rockefeller Foundation came up with another strategy. They funded the development of "golden rice", which would "prevent blindness and infection in millions of children' suffering from vitamin-A deficiency". Or how to complicate a simple problem. Why not educate poor people to grow vegetables on the margins of their rice fields ? Or why not considering distributing vitamin A tablets ? "At a cost of only $.05 per tablet, only $25,000 is needed to prevent 500,000 children from going blind per year. Contrast this with golden rice, which has cost more than $100 million dollars so far, and is not yet ready", the author says. On top of this, the "golden rice" provides so little vitamin A a two-year-old child would need to eat seven pounds per day. Likewise, an adult would need to eat nearly twenty pounds to get the daily recommended dose.

On top of that, the scarce investigation available shows that GM crops have *less nutritional value* than natural crops. Dr. Arpad Pusztai discovered that GM potatoes provide 20 % less proteins than natural species. Roundup Ready soy has also significantly lower levels of protein and other important nutrients, but higher levels of a potentially damaging lectin.

Animals sense the potential danger of GM crops. If cows, hogs, mice, squirrels, elk, deer and raccoons can choose, they leave the GM crops alone. This is a huge problem when experiments are performed on GM crops. Rats didn't want to eat the "immortal" tomato - still fresh, red and ripe... 150 days after picking... They had to be force-fed this artificial "food". The rodents knew something was wrong, and they were right. Seven of forty animals died within two weeks. Consequently, the tomato was approved. Huh ? Yeah, I am sorry. If you still believe the FDA was there to protect your health, time to wake up ! The FDA considers GM crops "substantially equivalent" to natural crops, and no experiment whatsoever will change its view on this matter. The FDA has in fact turned into the Washington branch office of Monsanto and Big Pharma.

Probably, you won't be aware that GM crops are abundant in the current diet, in *your* current diet. "GM foods are a regular part of the U.S. diet. Approximately 80 percent of the soy and 38 percent of the corn planted in the U.S. in 2003 is genetically engineered. Derivatives from these two crops are found in about 70 percent of processed foods. In addition, 70 percent of the cotton crop and more than 60 percent of the canola crop, both used for cooking oil, are also genetically modified".

Scientists like Dr. Arpad Pusztai are astonished : "I find that it is very, very unfair to use our fellow citizens as guinea pigs. We have to find the guinea pigs in the laboratory." But the FDA prefers to use the whole US-population for this purpose. The record so far is the following : "According to a March 2001 article in the New York Times, "The CDC (Center for Disease Control) now says that food is responsible for twice the number of illnesses in the United States as scientists thought just seven years ago... At least 80 percent of food-related illnesses are caused by viruses or other pathogens that scientists cannot even identify." The reported cases include 5,000 deaths, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 76 million illnesses per year. This increase roughly corresponds to the period when Americans have been eating GM food."

Digestion problems, irritable bowel syndrome, acne, eczema, headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome and lethargy are all possible complaints when eating genetically modified Roundup Ready soy, following John Graham of the York Laboratory.

The last chapter of this book deals with how to avoid GM crops in your menu. This book is highly recommended. Buy it, read it, and distribute it amongst your family members and friends.

This is one of the best topics covered today by Mr. Smith and very in depth as well. He tells us who is and how we are being deceived through the genetic engineering of our main food supplies. He has very astutely pointed out the problem how to deal with it and what political means we can take to stand up for our rights to not be poisoned.

Maybe, just maybe, if every law maker would read this book, and/or every voter held their feet to the fire, this nightmare could end some day. EVERYONE should read this book, whether from a moral (all the lies), health (all the DNA damage we will face), ecological (cross pollination, destroyed native plants), economic (talk about a monopoly; buy my seeds or starve), religious (Leviticus 19:19)...it is beyond the pale of human imagination that this is happening with government approval. No, more, with government running interference. Buy your openpollinted seeds now before it is FOREVER too late.

So the Rockefellers and their gang of international gangster/bankers are at it again- this time centralizing control over the world's food supply. Perenial Rockefeller cheerleader and sycophant Henry Kissinger apparently dreamed up this scheme, and even has the gaul to gush over how control over the world food supply can be used as a weapon against anybody who opposes his psychopath bosses. As usual there is abundant solid doucmentation of everything, yet "somehow" no attention is paid by the mainstream media. Oh, by the way: those genetically modified foods you're eating (to include 89% of the U.S. soy crop, and >80% of the U.S. corn crop) may modify bacteria growing in your gut, possibly leading to allergies, altered antibiotic resistance, and other health problems. Get on the phone to your Senator, because this isn't coming- it's here.

All of this information is excellent. Well presented and clear. Jeffrey Smith really knows his stuff. Even with my existing knowledge about genetically modified foods, including training with Smith himself, I learned a lot from the book and from the videos. The book is can't-put-it-down engaging, though in a rather horrifying way, given the issues it addresses. The videos and audio are excellent for sharing with others.

Must read for anybody who eats or has kids that do. If this guy is only 10% right, we are screwed. I've bought more packs and passed them out.

I would highly recommend Seeds of Deception and the GMO Trilogy by Jeffery Smith. It is well written and the information is extremely important for all of us. If we are eating processed and refined foods, corn, soy, canola and cotton we are eating genetically modified foods. These foods are linked to sterility, disease, and death. The FDA is not protecting us. Labeling is not required on any GMO food. For our sakes and the sakes of our children and grandchildren we need to be aware of the risks of GM foods. These foods have been banned in Europe. They can be banned here in the U.S. Seeds of Deception and the GMO Trilogy informs us what is happening to our food supply. Together we can stop this.

Now that the GM gangsters have the full co-operation of their cousins in British media and government, going as far as commissioning a shamelessly dishonest BBC program (The Future of Food), it's down to independent scientists like Jeffrey Smith to produce these great wake-up calls in the form of documentaries and books like these and up to us to disseminate them, and discuss them with the people we can reach. Buy a bunch of these packs and give them as Christmas presents instead of the latest blockbuster DVDs you were going to buy!!
