This skillfully researched book focuses on the effort of a tiny socio-political American elite to gain control over the very basis of human survival: Control the food and you control the people.

He cogently reveals a diabolical world of profit-driven political intrigue, government corruption and coercion, where genetic manipulation and the patenting of life forms are used to gain control over food production worldwide. If it often reads as a crime story, that should be no surprise: Engdahl’s carefully argued critique goes far beyond the familiar controversies surrounding the practice of genetic modification as a scientific technique.

Aug 19, Sara rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Sara by: An agricultural economist I met at a meeting. This is a very dense book with many footnotes and much to think about.
Engdahl provides a clear history of the development of genetically modified foods GMOas well as current efforts to expand the presence not only of GMO’s but also of genetically modified animals to our food chain. He writes of the conspiracy I use this word with some risk between major corporations and foundations in the United States to take over the food growing mechanisms of the world in order to control populatio This is a very dense book with many footnotes and much to think about.
He writes of the conspiracy I use this word with some risk between engdzhl corporations and foundations in the United States to take over the food growing mechanisms of the world in order to control population growth. The material he provides is startling. He talks about how the US government colluded by declaring GMO’s substantially the same as ordinary food crops and therefore not subject to consumer labeling requirements.
Not only that, but these GMO’s are also declared substantially different from the original seed so the GMO can be patented. We eat GMO’s every single day, fed f.wipliam us by major corporate food producers in this country, without any clear understanding of just what these foods can do to us. He describes in great detail how chemical companies like Monsanto and Dow have bought up small seed companies in an attempt to control who can grow what. This book is nothing short of a wake-up call to every single one of us to take back our food sources and insist that our government protect the people of this country, not work for the advancement of corporate interests around the globe.
It’s caused me to join organizations fighting against this sort of corrupt and despotic behaviour.

f.willia, If I thought corporations were evil entities before reading this book, my distrust has increased a million fold. Take back your food; know where your food comes from; buy local; buy organic. Before its too late. Oct 23, David rated it it was amazing. I can’t recommend this book highly enough. Engdahl’s meticulously researched and footnoted book explores the practical aspects of Henry Kissinger’s statement that “If you control the oil, you control the nations; if you control the food, you control c.william people.
It’s time to start a network of farms sustainably raising the thousands of crop and livestock species being squeezed literally out of existence. Aug 02, Sara rated it it was amazing Shelves: This movie can also help to realize the scale of destruction: Apr 20, Jennl rated it it was amazing.
Detailed research that explains a lot of things about the American food “system. It’s VERY political, scary, and mind-blowing. Like another reviewer said, “I can’t recommend this book highly enough. Nov 07, Ermhm rated it it was amazing Shelves: It is doing something better – showing you the political and economical background behind the GMO, and channeling the cries and testimonials of farmers and truth-loving scientists alike.
Nov 02, Lillian rated it it was amazing. Breaks down the conflicts of interest for the past years in regards to control of human populations. If you are a person who trusts GMOs, please read this.
Dec 04, Connie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I started this book while reading in bed prior to going to sleep. Four chapters later I had to force myself to turn off the light, but my head was whirling that sleep was impossible. I am fairly knowledgeable about the subject of genetically modified plants but had NO idea how long ago this really started, nor how many unexpected ‘players’ have been involved in what is even more evil and dangerous than I was aware.
The political figures involved in this really gobsmacked me. Evil just oozes from p I started this book while reading in bed prior to going to sleep. Evil just oozes from page after page. Kissinger and Daddy Bush certainly did not surprise me, but what they did and said most certainly DID! Jimmy Carter has been involved from the early daysI always thought he was honest and honorable and paid heed to science Within days his career was over, he and his wife had been banished from the institution at which they had worked for many years, his notes were seized, and lies and slander spread about him all over the world in a matter of days.
The chain of blame? Clinton who called PM Blair, and the information was suppressed and the life was ruined. There are many more similar incidents. This reads like a real thriller novel, but sadly it is all true. Engdahl follows the text of each chapter with extensive footnotes and references. His research is thorough. Now I am on to the next book on this same subject.
Feb 23, Jon rated it it was amazing. I’m halfway through this book, it’s fantastic. Each chapter is well footnoted I’m looking forward to reading all 3 of his books.
Jan 15, Suzanne rated it liked it. More like a 3. An important topic and a book worth reading, but it was in desperate need of editing. View all 6 comments. Sep 17, Tom Rizzi added it. Quite the eye opener about how Monsanto has intertwined themselves with the US government, our food supply and it’s global effect of close to a monopoly on the sale of seeds for crops.
Nov 23, Stephanie rated it really liked it. This book is scary. It is certainly written with a slant, but the facts speak for themselves. Shocking piece of literature. Jun 04, Adalberto rated it it was ok. The book doesn’t adduce enough scientific evidence to prove the toxicity of GMO foods.
Jul 10, Raymond Nazon rated it it was amazing. This book should be required history reading for schools. Awesome book and well documented.
Gives a great understanding of Genetically Modified Organism.
Mar 22, David Steele rated it it was amazing. Scary expose of the gmo industry.
