Good, well written book about the hidden truth behind Genetic modification, and its various products - Corn (Maize) and esp. Soy) that are meant to help solve World Hunger, and feed the 9 billion - Yeah Right!!!(Give me a break!) Biotech Propaganda , really, when you closely analyse it in detail and read independent scientists reports on misgivings about bthe technology.
It concerns mostly the good ol' USA., and it's farming system that departs from small well run traditional family farms to big vertically integrated huge monopolies that are highly polluting and quite frankly cruel to the animals in question -
Pigs, Cattle standing in their own excrement in stinking feedlots (Texas esp.), chickens in huge dark barns that are treated like thigs and living creatures .
See: Monsanto, Cargill , Walmart et al. Big chicken farms and other huge cattle feed-lot farms are particulary lax in
animal welfare, not to mention workers rights. Taking them to court seems the only remedy - good luck!
MONSANTO gets a roasting regarding the marketing and testing (What F.@#$ing testing ???) and approval of their flagship money making product - ROUNDUP herbicide. (Ubiqitous worldwide, unfortunately)
This lady (Wenonah Hauter) has done her homework and is the real deal - with a comprehensive index providing references and web links to sources of info.,Court documents , people, web sites etc....
The failings of Big Agriculture and the FDA's& EPA's machinations with the industry makes for very interesting reading. A real eye-opener!
