Supporters of companies producing genetically modified foods like Monsanto, DuPont and the others claim that their products have been rigorously tested and that their safety has been proven.
But millions of activists across the globe remain skeptical of these claims, in large part because of government collusion with the aforementioned chemical and GMO companies.
Accusations of systematic scientific fraud and bias in favor of approving GMOs and maintaining the status quo have yet to be answered, and now a new book is once again pointing the finger at these companies over the safety of their products.
The book titled ‘Altered Genes, Twisted Truth,’ was recently launched at a press conference in London by author Steven M. Druker, and includes a foreword from renowned researcher Dr. Jane Goodall.
In the book, Druker, an American public interest attorney who gained notoriety for initiating a lawsuit against the FDA forcing it reveal files on genetically modified foods, reveals his shocking findings and demonstrates the dangerous pattern of corruption and selective ignorance exhibited by the organization.
Those files showed that GMOs were only allowed to make it to market in 1992 because the FDA ignored the warnings of its own scientists, violated a federal food safety law allowing them to be marketed without having been proven safe through standard testing, and lied about the facts surrounding them according to this article from the website Farm Wars.
“Contrary to the pronouncements of its proponents, the massive enterprise to reconfigure the genetic core of the world’s food supply is not based on sound science but on the systematic subversion of science – and it would collapse if subjected to an open airing of the facts,” Druker said.
Goodall had this to say about Druker’s book: “I shall urge everyone I know who cares about life on Earth, and the future of their children, and children’s children, to read it,” she said.
“It will go a long way toward dispelling the confusion and delusion that has been created regarding the genetic engineering process and the foods it produces. . . . Steven Druker is a hero. He deserves at least a Nobel Prize.”
Druker issued a challenge to the Royal Society in Britain to confront and addressing the facts. culled from 15 years of research in the book, as well.
