If you eat, you should read this. Monsanto controls and shapes everything that goes into your food supply, and not for the better. Take action. Knowledge is power. Read this and say no to GMO's. The best book on the subject. Rachel Carson would have been proud.
I'm not going to be looking at soybeans, corn or other GMO foods the same way. Hard to believe Monsanto has gotten away with being able to manipulate governments to allow this stuff to be put into our food chain. Not only is this food only been superficially tested for potential harm, the crop yields aren't what were promised and now the GMO pollen and seeds are contaminating non-GMO crops. Europe has the right idea, to label this stuff so we consumers can make educated choices.
This book is well researched and documented by the authoress, Robin. If you care about your life and your planet, you should read this book. Monsanto is on a crusade to cause the sixth extinction of life on earth. My words, not the authoress. The book takes you through the history of Monsanto and its continuing deceits and hiding of the truth about the danger of all its products culminating with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO's) which will destroy us. She has documented how Monsanto destroys careers of people who beg to differ with Monsanto's point of view. Monsanto ignores scientific facts to push their products. The financial bottom line means more to them than human food safety. This is pointed out time and time again in her book. My opinion, not the authoress, of Monsanto after reading this book is this company is one of the most evil companies on earth. I think when your read this well documented book, you will reach the same conclusion.
Should be required reading for every American.
