Seeds of Deception is a major event in informing the public about the safety or (more precisely the lack of it) of genetically modified foods, which are hailed to be one of the most important scientific developments of our age. In contrast to the bland assurances from official propaganda, the book lays bare the concerted machinations of the biotechnology industry, the media, politicians and the regulatory authorities, all united in their effort and using any means to allay the rightful concerns and fears of the public about this unpredictable and unsafe technology.' --Arpad Pusztai, Ph.D. Leading Expert on Safety Research conducted on GM Foods
Jeffrey Smith's lucid, informative and tightly argued exposé of genetically modified foods lays bare the blockbuster food safety issue of the 21st century. Although Americans slept as the biotech industry quietly kidnapped our food supply, Europe sent the miscreants - typified by Monsanto - packing. Mr. Smith presents a roadmap of insensitivity by America's food giants and a blueprint of action to stop them from wreaking further havoc. --James S. Turner, Author, The Chemical Feast
To get up to speed on the subject of genetically modified foods, there's no better book than Seeds of Deception. Jeffrey Smith deals with the science as well as the deception in a pleasing, sure-footed way. --Jim Diamond, M.D. Chair, Sierra Club Genetic Engineering Committee
