Product Description

Synopsis

This skilfully researched book focuses on how a small socio-political American elite seeks to establish its control over the very basis of human survival, the provision of our daily bread. 'Control the food and you control the people'. This is no ordinary book about the perils of GMO. Engdahl takes the reader inside the corridors of power, into the backrooms of the science labs, behind closed doors in the corporate boardrooms. The author reveals a World of profit-driven political intrigue, government corruption and coercion, where genetic manipulation and the patenting of life forms are used to gain world-wide control over food production. The book is an eye-opener, a must-read for all those committed to the causes of social justice and World peace.

By Luc REYNAERT TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
After his remarkable book, `A Century of War', about the fierce battle for world energy (oil) control, F.W. Engdahl examines here a second extremely important world power instrument: food.
He integrates carefully this power line in a much bigger framework concocted by the world power elite in order to control world demographics and even eugenics.
The world power elite (see Daniel Estulin's shocking book `The true Story of the Bilderberg Group') created a transnational agribusiness in order to open new markets for energy products (petro-chemical fertilizers). This agribusiness, however, developed a more effective weapon for worldwide food control: genetically modified organisms (GMO), thereby creating through patent registration a world oligopoly of 4 transnational companies: Monsanto, Dow Chemical, DuPont and Novartis.

Risk assessment of GMO
Risk data remain mostly hidden behind the veil of `confidential business information'. However, certain experiments on rats showed that GMO food could be responsible for lower body, liver and heart, but also brain size. Possible effects on birth defects are also a big question mark.
The scientific policies of these companies seem to be `don't tell, don't ask'. In this context, they seem to use the whole world population as guinea pigs.
Another risk constitutes the reduced genetic plant diversity (monocultures).
One blatant lie was the statement that GMO would lead to a lower use of herbicides, but, in fact, more herbicides were necessary to combat herbicide-resistant weed.

Seed serfs
Farmers became totally dependent on the members of the oligopoly. Each year they had to pay a fee and were forbidden to re-use seeds from previous year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read 17 May 2010
Format:Paperback
This book lays out the facts, backed up by the relevant documents, behind the current effort to control the food supply of the planet by the agribusiness giants, working hand in hand with the governments of North America and others. That the plan to control the populations and genetics of the human population was financed by the same foundations that financed Hitler's eugenics program is just one small detail. But it is a decisive one in establishing the roots and goals of this effort at world domination using control over food and genes, instead of atomic bombs, which, says one source, are much more expensive.

If everyone read this book, we would all be on the streets, heading for the seats of power to overthrow them, if we still had any courage that is. However, the same powers that have launched this "genetic armageddon" have also arranged to make our lives so soft and easy that we have all lost our courage, self confidence, and the ability to organize and act.

It will be interesting to see what happens next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good informational book 13 Nov 2010
By Alina
Format:Paperback
The book gives details of when the genetically modified products came on the market and also how. It's amazing to find out that a very small group of people have the power over the petrol and the food in the whole world. As it says in the book, if they control the natural resources of the world, they control the economy and if they control the food production they control the people. There must be a way that they could be stopped. Read the book to find out more. It is full of proof and insight.

By Dyesey
Format:Paperback
A book that everyone should be made to read and understand before they be allowed to vote for a politician from any party. It is only then that we may stop these monsters and start to solve the worlds problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seeds of Destruction 11 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
In no way can this book be described as an enjoyable read, it is however an essential read for people who are wondering what on earth is going wrong with the world. It is well documented , although it does jump back and forth to different time periods. I found that I had to read other lighter books in between the reading of this book, there are many very unpleasant truths in this work, most of which can be checked out. It is easy to dismiss this type of book as yet another conspiracy theory, I do not think this is so with this book. Much of what is written is probable known to many people, this book joins up the dots. To all sincere students of modern history I would highly recommend it, although the truth within it, at times is very unpalatable.
