Editorial Reviews

Review

Publishers Weekly-
Recent news headlines have focused on the disagreement between the U.S. and Europe over genetically modified foods: the U.S. exports them, but the European Union doesn't want to import them, believing their safety remains unproven. Are genetically modified foods safe? Longtime anti-GM foods campaigner Smith presents the "opposing" case. He offers cases where GM produced results that were at best unexpected (increased starch content in potatoes), at worst grotesque (pigs without genitals). He describes how one corporation reportedly tried to bribe Canadian government scientists into approving genetically engineered bovine growth hormones they deemed unsafe; how some scientists have reported their careers were threatened as a result of their refusal to approve certain GM products in the U.S.; and how "conflicts of interest, sloppy science, and industry influence" can distort the approval process. The cases Smith presents are scary and timely, but he explores only one side of the story. Readers looking for a balance consideration of genetically modified foods will want to look elsewhere.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.



"Jeffrey Smith masterfully combines the art of storytelling and investigative reporting. The result is riveting, enlightening, and disturbing."--Jennifer Read Hawthorne, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul



"The revelations in this powerful exposé could spark the revolution that the topic [of genetically engineered foods] deserves."--Hunter Lovins, co-author of Natural Capitalism



"This book, which is the best written on the subject, is essential reading for food activists and concerned consumers."--Ronnie Cummins, National Director of the Organic Consumer's Association




"Seeds of Deception lays bare the blockbuster food safety issue of the 21st century. Every American should read this book."--James S. Turner Esq., author of The Chemical Feast: The Nader Report on the Food and Drug Administration

About the Author

International bestselling author of Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette, Jeffrey M. Smith is a widely popular spokesperson on the documented health risks of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and how biotech companies rig research, gag critics, hijack regulators, and spin fantastic unfulfilled promises. His Institute for Responsible Technology's Campaign for Healthier Eating in America is designed to achieve the tipping point of consumer rejection of GMOs to force them out of the food supply. The campaign encourages public and private showings of the Monsanto film and offers support material at www.ResponsibleTechnology.org. He lives in Fairfield, Iowa.
