I'm not one of those tree-hugging liberals. I like science, I learned in school that genetic engineering was a GOOD thing, and years ago I was a plebe at Arthur D. Little (support staff, not a scientist). For years my earthy-crunchy friends have been warning me of the dangers of GMO's in the food and I ignored them, reasoning I was not about to take up Yoga and become a vegetarian.Was this review helpful?

Then my kids got sick and we learned part of the problem was stuff hidden in the food...
My day-job is attorney. Before I swallow a bunch of hogwash to double my grocery bill and start buying organic, I want some EVIDENCE. Hard, credible, reliable scientific evidence from credible, realistic scientists who don't have an agenda and not a bunch of quacks. I also want counter-evidence about why I shouldn't believe the OTHER guy's evidence of all the reasons GMO's are safe. Dr. Jeffrey M. Smith convinced me.
I did my time working at Arther D. Little years ago helping the scientists document the effects of this substance or that on rats. I was just an office assistant back then, but I worked there just long enough to understand there is a vast difference between the 90-day initial safety studies the food industry trots out as justification for claiming these substances are safe, and a 3-year longitudinal study where they examine the long-term effects of something on animals. You ever hear of anybody who smoked a cigarette and died of lung cancer in 90 days? No. It takes years ... same as it does for rats. Those 2,000 GMO-funded studies ... they're all 90-day studies. The few studies that have been done to study the effects of Bte-toxin-producing-GMO-food on animals that lasted longer than that ... oof! Scary. Scary scary scary. Don't want to eat it no more. Nope. You convinced me. Until Big-Ag produces 2,000 LONG-TERM studies, I'm not buying their food.
I'm still cautious about what I believe, but since we cleaned out all the GMO's in our diet, my kid's problems are gradually getting better. There were two effects, the all of a sudden decrease in irritability which occured about the third day after we stripped GMO's out of our diet (we had no idea we were all so irritable all the time until all of a sudden we weren't anymore), and then the more gradual lessening of some of his other physiological symptoms.
There's a lot of quacks out there spinning pseudo-science, all with their hands out, trying to get you to take this fruity-tooty class, buy this product, embrace this lifestyle or start doing some pretty strange things. Ignore those quacks. Dr. Jeffrey Smith has been able to credibly back up every claim he's made, and when he doesn't know or the evidence is sparse, he's honest about it. Buy this book and use it to help you figure out which lifestyle chioces you wish to make in YOUR family.
