"
effi-eySmith's lucid, informative, and tightly argued expost of genet-ically modified foods lays bare the blockbuster food safety issue of the
2lSt
entury. Although Americans slept as the biotech industry quietlykidnapped our food supply, Europe sent the miscreants-typified byMonsant-packing.
Mr.
Smith presents
a
roadrnap of insensitivity byAmerica's food giants and a blueprint of action to stop them fromwreaking further havoc. Every American should read this book."

"Seeds of Deception
is the first book to make a convincing case for theexistence of a genuine conspiracy on the part of the biotechnologyindustry to suppress free speech, debate and even scientific dialogueabout the safety and value of GMOs. In doing so, Jeffky Smith paints avivid and disturbing picture of governmental passivity and scientificneglect of urgent problems associated
with
genetically engineered agri-culture. By putting together over a dozen episodes of interference andcollusion against activists who have questioned the wisdom ofproceeding unabated with this collective, non-consensual experimentwith our food, Smith shows how industry proponents have done them-selves and a whole generation of consumers a massive disservice in thename of corporate profits and short-term private gain."

"To get 'up to speed' on the subject of genetically modified foods,there's no better book than Seeds
of
Deception. Jefiey Smith deals withthe science as well as the deception in a pleasing, surefooted way."

Chair, Sierra Club Genetic Engineering Committee"Seeds
o
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,
all
united in their effort and using any means to allay therightll concerns and fears of the public about this unpredictable andunsafe technology.
A
particular strength of the book-and this
will
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
I
am a scientist Igot some special insights into the workings of the recombinant
DNA
technology fi-om Jefiey Smith's enjoyable presentation."

Arpad Pusztai,
Ph.D.
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
of
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
will
avoid eating them;food company executives
will
want them out of their products; and thegovernment, hopemy,
will
put an end to this outrageous experiment."
