Jane Goodall and Steven Druker Expose US Government Fraud over GMOs

Nation of Change, by Sustainable Pulse, March 8, 2015

In an acclaimed new book being launched Wednesday in London, American public interest attorney Steven Druker reveals how the US government and leading scientific institutions have systematically misrepresented the facts about GMOs and the scientific research that casts doubt on their safety.

The book, Altered Genes, Twisted Truth, features a foreword by the renowned primatologist Dame Jane Goodall, hailing it as “without doubt one of the most important books of the last 50 years”.

The book’s revelations come at a crucial time when some European countries are considering the commercial planting of GM crops following the European Parliament’s decision to allow member states to opt out of the blockade that has barred them from the EU until now. Based on the evidence presented in the book, Druker and Goodall will assert that it would be foolhardy to push forward with a technology that is unacceptably risky and should never have been allowed on the market in the first place. …

BOOK REVIEW: Altered Genes, Twisted Truth

Organic Consumers Association

The book tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to reconfigure the genetic core of the world's food supply was born, how it has routinely advanced through illicit means, and how it is recklessly subjecting our health and the health of the environment to unacceptable risks. It reveals that the venture is not based on sound science, as its proponents claim, but on the evasion of the standards of science; and it shows how for more than three decades, a host of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of gene-altered foods - and get them onto our dinner plates.

The book also exposes how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) became a key accomplice, in furtherance of its explicit agenda "to foster" biotechnology. Based on documents pried from the FDA's files through a lawsuit that I initiated, it describes how the agency's politically appointed administrators disregarded the extensive warnings of their own scientists about the unusual risks of these novel products and ushered them onto supermarket shelves in violation of the mandates of federal food safety law. It further shows how they concealed their crime by covering up their experts' warnings and persistently lying about the facts, creating the illusion that genetically engineered (GE) foods have undergone rigorous scientific review when, in reality, the standard procedures of science have been circumvented. Consequently, for fifteen years, America's families have been regularly ingesting a group of novel products that are not only being sold illegally, but were determined to be unduly hazardous by the FDA's scientific staff. …
