"The GMO Deception brings together essays by specialists in a wide range of fields united in skepticism about the benefits of GMOs for reasons grounded in in biology, social science, politics, and ethics. If you do not understand why there is so much opposition to GMOs, nationally and internationally, this book is the place to start." --Marion Nestle is professor of nutrition, food studies, and public health at New York University and author most recently of Eat Drink Vote: An Illustrated Guide to Food Politics "Along with the perils facing our planet from climate change, there is no greater concern than the unforeseen impacts of GMOs on our food supply. This eye-opening collection of essays by numerous experts lays bare what global corporations like Monsanto are attempting to foist upon us, as well as how activists around the world are fighting back to preserve our children's future." --Dick Russell, environmental author "The GMO Deception is the most comprehensive resource covering all areas of this complex topic from human health, environmental risks, and GMO labeling to biotech company seed monopolies and the impact of GMOs worldwide. The chapter authors, including Michael Hansen, Vandana Shiva, Frances Moore Lappe, Bill Freese, John Fagan, Michael Antoniou, Claire Robinson, Doug Gurian-Sherman, and Sheldon Krimsky, are some of the most distinguished, leading experts in revealing this global deception. The GMO Deception is a valuable resource for anyone interested in preserving the genetic integrity of food." --Ken Roseboro, editor and publisher, The Organic & Non-GMO Report "Everyone needs to read this important book of essays on the sordid history of GMOs and their impact on the environment, agriculture and public health. Krimsky and Gruber have brought together an encyclopedia-like compendium of essays that provide the context for how this greedy and self-serving industry has forced their untested technology literally down our throats." --Wenonah Hauter, executive director, Food & Water Watch and author of Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America
