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.
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!
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.Read more ›
