Books

  • Seeds of Deception exposing corporate and government lies about the safety of genetically engineered food by Jeffrey M. Smith.

    This briliant book has a foreword by former UK Environment Minister Michael Meacher MP who said it "combines shrewd dissection of the true nature of GM technology, a devastating critique of the health and environmental hazards of GM crops, and scarifying examples of the manipulation of both science and the media by the biotech industry. It is a call to arms, not only to prevent the contamination of the nation's food supply, but even more to tackle the poisoning of the nation's decision-making system by the undercover wielding of economic and financial muscle and PR manipulativeness of Big Biotech."

    Available in Britain from Green Books.
