A rule of thumb for healthy living is: the more processed your food, the less nutritious and healthy it is. Waste and by-products from manufacturing processes are now incorporated into products and sold misleadingly as food. Consequently, avoiding processed food is a good maxim for health. However, if your food has been modified before it is harvested, what protection is left?
“Altered Genes, Twisted Truths” : A Challenge to Monsanto by Colin Todhunter
Attorney Steven Druker's New Book
In a challenge delivered to Monsanto’s headquarters on May 20, 2015, US public interest attorney Steven Druker calls on that corporation to find any inaccurate statements of fact in his new book:
Altered Genes, Twisted Truth – How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public.
Monsanto captured food regulation on Ronald Reagan's watch in the 1980s and the US Food and Drug Administration has been complicit in covering up the company's crimes ever since. Should the TransPacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) come into force, the march of GMO foods will become unstoppable and they will infect the entire food chain. We risk sowing the seeds of our own destruction and that of many other species with the willing connivance of those supposedly representing our interests. This one facet of these trade agreements alone should consign them to oblivion.
