This is a highly informative text book.It is not in any way a "reading" book but once you get used to the style of the text and layout the underlying story is, indeed, fascinating. There is a lot of extensively referenced information from the global scientific community which lends much credibility to Mr Smith's arguments. The book lays out the how-its-all-done facts from the technical aspects of genetic modification to the political manouvering and scientific-funding-by big-business agenda. Who pulls the strings behind the scenes and how issues can be correctly, but often misleadingly, presented by biased interests.

Genetic Roulette is a reference book you dip into from time to time. Some of the scientific information is highly technical and if you are not a scientist it can take some time to absorb but it is not too difficult to do so. The principles are generally pretty clear.

If you are interested in the facts behind the media's portrayal of GM food production then this is certainly worth a read but do be warned - it is not a cosy read but more of an academic (although very pertinent and understandable) study for any purchaser. I actually enjoyed it once I got used to the semi-lecture style and found the information it generated very useful.

A "must read" book, extremely well written with concise headings and grouping of themes. It opens up the theme of GM foods, and disperses the clouds of Public Relations with which Governments and other interested parties have flooded the market to convince consumers in an Orwellian manner that these manipulated products are made for their own good.

I call it a real shocker because it is incredible, with all the evidence that is piling up against GM foods, and the potential of a health disaster, that Authorities around the globe glibly approve and recommend new varieties without blinking an eye.

A brilliant piece of work that should be on the curriculum of every school. Thank you, Jeffrey Smith!

Genetic Roulette is an excellent, authoritative book which brings together all the information we have to date on genetically modified crops and food. It is set out very clearly so that it is suitable for quick reading or as a very comprehensive reference book. The first part documents the health risks from GM foods, part 2 shows how regulation of of GM foods is inadequate to protect health and the third part shows the shortcoming of testing by industries. The 4th and final part shows the flaws in arguments used to justify GM crops. This book should be read by all our political representatives and anyone who cares about our health, our wildlife, our environment, our agriculture and the future of our planet.

Jeffrey Smith is an expert on this subject (I've watched his video which overviews his written work) and he is the leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices. He authored the world's bestselling book on the health dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The author has counseled leaders from every continent, campaigned to end the use of genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rbGH or rbST), and influenced the first state laws in the United States regulating GMOs. Former US National Institutes of Health scientist Candace Pert (whose own work I like) describes the author as "the leading world expert in the understanding and communication of the health issues surrounding genetically modified foods."

So I reckon when he says something, we need to listen and equally importantly, trust what he says is true.

His first book Seeds of Deception combines storytelling and investigative reporting. This second book on the subject, Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods adds more information and fleshes out his argument for getting involved at grass roots level in our food production. It is a big book in terms of both its size and the technical info it offers the reader. Sure, its a technical book in parts, but it should be accessible to anyone who wants to grasp the biology of how we are trying to improve the natural cycle of foods we need to grow to live well.

Eating GMO foods has risks, lots of them. Smith includes 65 health dangers. These link GMOs in our food to toxic, allergic reactions, and infertility. How do we know this? Science uses animal studies to test ideas, so damage to virtually every internal organ studied in lab animals has been reported.

Rare truth concealed by establishment which is in the pockets of the monopolies and the rothschild internationals bankers amongst others which have imposed their private banking on nations around the world and have wielded their power over our oligarchy since 1649 and the English Revolution and that seem intent on destroying humanity.
