 Book Review: Andrew Kimbrell's "Your Right To Know: Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food"

 YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW: Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food by Andrew Kimbrell,foreword by Nell Newman ISBN1932771190

*A comprehensive reference guide to the hidden facts of genetically modified food with a pocket guide for informed choices in the supermarkets.

*The Deluxe hardcover edition features a DVD, The Future of Food, produced and directed by Deborah Garcia.

Three Important Questions:

1. Did you know that the US Government holds a patent on “Terminator Technology”, developed by Monsanto, that makes plants sterile after a single growing season?

2. Are you aware that the UN Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that three-fourths of agricultural genetic diversity has been lost in the past century?

3. Did you realize that the Grocery Manufacturers of America estimate that 75% of all processed foods contain Genetically Modified ingredients?

If fish tomatoes and human pigs are frightening concepts to you, if organic foods matter to you, if you are concerned about the impact of toxic genes on human health, this book is a must read for you. More than half of America's processed grocery products from cornflakes to granola bars; from milk laden with growth hormones to diet drinks containing genetically altered ingredients. They are unlabeled, untested ... and we Americans are unwittingly consuming it all. Your Right to Know: Genetic Engineering and the Secret Changes in Your Food is a complete reference outlining how unmarked, genetically modified foods find their way onto our dining tables impacting the food supply, our health and our lives.

There are charts linking the men and women of Monsanto/Searle to the halls of power in Washington, where they, as policy makers, control the outcome of such tampering, including: John Ashcroft, former US Attorney General, Margaret Miller, of the FDA, Linda Fisher, of the EPA, Michael Friedman, MD of the FDA, Michael Taylor of the APHIS – Plant Health Inspection Service, Anne Vaneman, of the USDA, Clarence Thomas of the Supreme Court, and Michael ‘Mickey’ Kantor Secretary of Commerce. If that doesn’t set your alarm bells off, you may also remember that when Donald Rumsfeld was on the Board of Directors of the Chicago Tribune and CEO of Monsanto, he cut a deal with soon to be President of these United States, Mr. Ronald Regan, the upshot of which was that if elected with Rumsfeld’s help, he was to remove the road blocks at the FDA to approve the poison Aspartame for human consumption after more than ten years of rejection by that agency. (See our page “You Are What You Eat” and read the section on artificial sweeteners.)

Turning a spot light on genetically engineered foods and the corporations who profit mightily from them, this definitive book is for all concerned consumers, from parents to the general public who need to know more about the inherent health risks involved. It also covers organic options and other food choices available to us as well as ways through which we can fight corporate agribusiness and the industrial takeover of the food supply which imperils us all.
