Deception is a major event in informing the public about thesafety or (more precisely the lack of it) of genetically modified foods,which are hailed to be one of the most important scientific develop-ments of our age. In contrast to the bland assurances fi-om official prop-aganda, the book lays bare the concerted machinations of thebiotechnology industry, the media, politicians, and the regulatoryauthorities,
united in their effort and using any means to allay therightll concerns and fears of the public about this unpredictable andunsafe technology.
particular strength of the book-and this
behated by the pro-GM lobby-is that it uses a very colorll but easilyunderstandable language to describe what is usually regarded as 'high'science. My greatest compliment is that even though
am a scientist Igot some special insights into the workings of the recombinant
technology fi-om Jefiey Smith's enjoyable presentation."
Leading Expert on Safety Research Conducted on GM Foods"This is a book that every American should read. In a highly acces-sible story format, Seeds
Deception provides a compelling andpowerll indictment of industry and government agencies that haveconspired to hide the dangers of genetically engineered foods. Afterreading the truth about these foods, consumers
avoid eating them;food company executives
want them out of their products; and thegovernment, hopemy,
put an end to this outrageous experiment."
