“The US government and leading scientific institutions have systematically misrepresented the facts about GMO.”
The famous zoologist Jane Goodall, who worked with monkeys in their native habitat at the Gombe Stream Reserve at Lake Tanganyika in the 1970’s, is joining a prominent activist lawyer, Steven Druker, to reveal the mockery of truth Big Biotech and the US government have made over genetically modified foods.
Steven Druker has written a book detailing it all titled “Altered Genes, Twisted Truth” which features Dame Jane Goodall, who has called it one of the most important books in the last 50 years.
The book is being published at an opportune time, when the EU Parliament is working on the decision that states can ban GMOs. Based on evidence that Druker and Goodall provide in the book, they should ban the cultivation of genetically modified seeds from Poland to Greece; the UK, to France.
Druker researched Biotech’s commercialization for over 15 years in order to write the book, and has a history of forcing the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to divulge its files on GM food in a lawsuit started in 1992. He based his suit on the fact that:
- The FDA has hidden many of its own findings about toxicity of GM crops.
- Violated federal food safety laws by giving a rubber stamp to ‘food’ items that should have had to prove certain standards through rigorous testing.
- The public unwittingly ate foods they did not know were dangerous due to their failure to regulate.
Drucker aptly points out that if the FDA had heeded its own ‘expert’ advice and publicly acknowledged their warnings that GM foods were riskier than conventional counterparts, biotech never would have had enough traction to launch a worldwide campaign.
His book also talks about the well-placed scientists (paid shills) who work at leading, ‘respectable’ institutions such as the US National Academy of Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the UK’s Royal Society that have simply supported the biotech agenda while never truly evaluating the risks associated with genetically modified crops. Because of this, most of the public has been shammed. They aren’t aware of the dangers in eating GM foods.
One of the best examples Druker provides of the failure of biotechnology concerns the food supplement for an essential amino acid, L-tryptophan. Biotech’s first ingestible version of this amino acid actually caused thousands of deaths and permanently disabled many people.
Even the FDA’s own task force has seen ample evidence in both laboratory animals and in vivo trials to conclude that GM products should never have been allowed to go on the market. Now we have a world that is suffering from reproductive failure, liver disturbances, intestinal abnormalities, compromised immune systems, and an even greater incidence of obesity.
Even cautionary advice from eminent researchers from the Royal Society of Canada and the Public Health Association of Australia have been ignored.
“Contrary to the assertions 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.”
Drucker and Goodall intend to confront the Royal Society to recount the facts, apologize for the misleading statements that it and several of its prominent members have issued, and take earnest steps to set the record straight.
Goodall states in the book’s forward:
“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. 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.”
