Eating genetically modified food is gambling with every bite.The biotech industrys claim that genetically modified (GM) foods are safe is shattered in this groundbreaking book. Sixty-five health risks of the foods that Americans eat every day are presented in easy-to-read two-page spreads. The left page is designed for the quick scanning reader; it includes bullets, illustrations, and quotes. The right side offers fully referenced text, describing both research studies and theoretical risks. The second half of "Genetic Roulette" shows how safety assessments on GM crops are not competent to identify the health problems presented in the first half. It also exposes how industry research is rigged to avoid finding problems.This book, prepared in with input by more than 30 scientists, is for anyone wanting to understand GM technology, to learn how to protect themselves, or to share their concerns with others. It is presented in the clear, accessible style that made Jeffrey Smiths "Seeds of Deception" the worlds best-selling book on genetically engineered foods. As the worlds most complete reference on the health risks of GM foods, "Genetic Roulette" is also ideal for schools and libraries.

"Genetic Roulette" tells you why you must avoid genetically engineered foods to stay healthy.John H. Boyles, MD, ear, nose, and throat, and allergy specialist When I worked at Monsanto, I warned both scientists and executives that our GM foods may cause disease, but no one was even willing to listen, let alone investigate the unpredicted side effects. For them, it was all about profit. Now our whole population is threatened by the serious dangers described in "Genetic Roulette,"Kirk J. Azevedo, DC Jeffrey Smith is the leading world expert in the understanding and communication of the health issues surrounding genetically modified foods. "Genetic Roulette," which brings in original contributions by eminent scientists worldwide, makes it crystal clear that the American FDA should not be so cavalier about the potential dangers of these procedures.Candace Pert, PhD, author of "Molecules of Emotion" and "Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d" and former Chief of the Section, National Institutes of Health Congratulations, Jeffrey Smith, for your courage. Thanks to your tireless investigations, we need wonder no longer why corporations spreading GMOs are so secretive, why theyve spent hundreds of millions to keep us from even knowing which foods contain GMOs. They dont want us to examine the shoddy science, the suppressed evidence, and, most of all, the real health risks that GMOs present. Read "Genetic Roulette" not only to protect yourself and your family but to learn through this breath-taking story what all Americans need to do to reclaim our democracy and protect our planet.

The case presented is absolutely a smoking shotgun that should stop in its tracks any dabbling with GM foods, whether by individual families, food companies, or indeed nations. . . . Jeffrey Smith is one of the great campaigners of our age, a relentless pursuer of the truth, a fearless advocate in the corporate world of secret influence, and a ceaseless promoter of the public interest across the world. He is the modern David against the GM Goliath. This book may well provide the sling-shot to change the global course of events this century.Excerpts from the foreword by Michael Meacher, MP, former UK government environment minister "Jeffrey Smith is the leading world expert in the understanding and communication of the health issues surrounding genetically modified foods.
