“Druker’s brilliant expose catches the promoters of GE food red-handed: falsifying data, corrupting regulators, lying to Congress. He thoroughly demonstrates how distortions and deceptions have been piled one on top of another, year after year, producing a global industry that teeters on a foundation of fraud and denial. This book is sure to send shockwaves around the world.” –Jeffrey Smith
How does it happen that a handful of multinational corporations (MNCs) can systematically takeover control of food safety and food security for the entire human population, and insidiously launch the largest land grab in history?
These patented ‘life forms’ and the ‘legal’ framework that protects the MNCs as they roll out their plan to “feed the world” are nothing less than the latest form of colonialism. The collateral damage could be the health of you and your family.
GMOs are rapidly becoming the greatest civil rights issue of our time; the more you know, the better decisions you will make.
Altered Genes, Twisted Truth
How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science,
Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public
“Without Doubt One of the Most Important Books of the Last 50 Years”
World-famous (and well-beloved) primatologist Jane Goodall has written the foreword, in which she not only hails it as one of the most important books of the last 50 years but states: “I shall urge everyone I know who cares about life on earth, and the future of their children, and children’s children, to read it. It will go a long way toward dispelling the confusion and delusion that has been created regarding the genetic engineering process and the foods it produces. . . . Steven Druker is a hero. He deserves at least a Nobel Prize.”
Druker’s brilliant expose catches the promoters of genetically modified food red-handed: falsifying data, corrupting regulators, lying to Congress. He thoroughly demonstrates how distortions and deceptions have been piled one on top of another, year after year, producing a global industry that teeters on a foundation of fraud and denial. Altered Genes, Twisted Truth does far more than expose the FDA’s fraud. It reveals how the entire GE food venture has been chronically and crucially dependent on fraud – and how the key misrepresentations have been dispensed by eminent scientists and scientific institutions such as the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the U.K. Royal Society.
Praise for Altered Genes, Twisted Truth
“A fascinating book: highly informative, eminently readable, and most enjoyable. It’s a real page-turner and an eye-opener.”
– Richard C. Jennings, PhD Department of History and Philosophy of Science,
University of Cambridge
“This incisive and insightful book is truly outstanding. Not only is it well-reasoned and scientifically solid, it’s a pleasure to read – and a must-read. Through its masterful marshalling of facts, it dispels the cloud of disinformation that has misled people into believing that GE foods have been adequately tested and don’t entail abnormal risk.”
— David Schubert, PhD molecular biologist and Head of Cellular Neurobiology,
Salk Institute for Biological Studies
“A great book. The evidence is comprehensive and irrefutable; the reasoning is clear and compelling. No one has documented other cases of irresponsible behavior by government regulators and the scientific establishment nearly as well as Druker documents this one. His book should be widely read and thoroughly heeded.”
— John Ikerd, PhD Professor Emeritus of Agricultural Economics, University of Missouri
“Steven Druker’s meticulously documented, well-crafted, and spellbinding narrative should serve as a clarion call to all of us. In particular, his chapter detailing the deadly epidemic of 1989-90 that was linked with a genetically engineered food supplement is especially significant. . . . Overall his discussion of this tragic event, as well as its ominous implications, is the most comprehensive, evenly-balanced and accurate account that I have read.”
— Stephen Naylor, PhD Professor of Biochemistry, Mayo Clinic (1991-2001)
“A landmark. It should be required reading in every university biology course.”
– Joseph Cummins, PhD Professor Emeritus of Genetics,
Western University, Ontario
“A remarkable work. If the numerous revelations it contains become widely known, the arguments being used to defend genetically engineered foods will be untenable.”
