Publisher's Summary

This audiobook uncovers the biggest scientific fraud of our age. It tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world's food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products - and get them onto our dinner plates.
Altered Genes, Twisted Truth provides a graphic account of how this elaborate fraud was crafted and how it not only deceived the general public, but Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Barack Obama and a host of other astute and influential individuals as well. The audiobook also exposes how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was induced to become a key accomplice - and how it has broken the law and repeatedly lied in order to usher genetically engineered foods onto the market without the safety testing that's required by federal statute. As a result, for fifteen years America's families have been regularly ingesting a group of novel products that the FDA's own scientific staff had previously determined to be unduly hazardous to human health.
By the time this gripping story comes to a close, it will be clear that the degradation of science it documents has not only been unsavory but unprecedented - and that in no other instance have so many scientists so seriously subverted the standards they were trained to uphold, misled so many people, and imposed such magnitude of risk on both human health and the health of the environment.

Unmissable information when contemplating GMO

Bad science, ignored science and science unduly swayed by money and politics are exposed here in a very thorough unveiling of the history of GMOs and where we are up to today.

Key topics are highlighting the difference between breeding plants and altering their genes, how imprecise genetic engineering is, the terrible incidents that have occurred in the past when scientists have sought to line their own pockets rather than admit their lack of knowledge, how language has been manipulated to obscure the truth about GMOs and most importantly the vast complexity of how genes work, interacting with one another in ways we cannot possibly predict, and the hidden dangers of processes such as epigenetics that we really do not understand.

Most revealing is the complete lack of vigorous scientific evidence for GMOs most of which have not been studied at all and those that have only over a comparatively short term.
