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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Well - difficult to know where to start...
The main thrust of this book is that a few members of the elite are up to their usual shenanigans of wanting to control the rest of us through vicarious means. The last step in the chain is to control food. As the world's population grows ever greater, the demand on land and animals to produce greater and greater amounts of food increases. It becomes apparent that certain vested interests have realised this for some time (read decades), and have spent billions pushing the GM agenda through for years. The manipulation of statistics that prove that GM crops are safe takes your breath away as well as the discrediting of any critic that stands in the way.
Early on in the book, Engdahl explains how many of those involved in the creation of this industry were also behind organisations who were strong advocates of eugenics. This is the worrying part; they genuinely do believe they are almost a breed apart.
The sheer audacity of the people mentioned who wish to control the food supply, for no other reasons than
* Making even more money - even though the individuals concerned via their financial arms have the capacity to print it at will.
* Manage the population the way they want it to be managed. They need to be in charge and to hell with democracy.
After reading this, you will realise why arable land deemed organic, and the crops grown on it command such a healthy premium. It would be nice for people to start linking the growth of these GM food stuffs, along with their somewhat unhealthy addition to powerful agri-chemicals to the decline in bees. I note from the current Private Eye (19 Jan '11), the bending of facts has already started.
