Publisher's Summary

This audiobook uncovers the biggest scientific fraud of our age. It tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world's food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products - and get them onto our dinner plates.
Altered Genes, Twisted Truth provides a graphic account of how this elaborate fraud was crafted and how it not only deceived the general public, but Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Barack Obama and a host of other astute and influential individuals as well. The audiobook also exposes how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was induced to become a key accomplice - and how it has broken the law and repeatedly lied in order to usher genetically engineered foods onto the market without the safety testing that's required by federal statute. As a result, for fifteen years America's families have been regularly ingesting a group of novel products that the FDA's own scientific staff had previously determined to be unduly hazardous to human health.
By the time this gripping story comes to a close, it will be clear that the degradation of science it documents has not only been unsavory but unprecedented - and that in no other instance have so many scientists so seriously subverted the standards they were trained to uphold, misled so many people, and imposed such magnitude of risk on both human health and the health of the environment.

Profit trumps health

This well researched book provides plenty of evidence that genetically modified foods may, indeed, be dangerous. I suggest the reader check the list of countries banning genetically engineered. Crops . Then, after reading this book and the references. Become active in moving the U.S. Away from the model of Profit trumps health.

This is a great book!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have always wondered why there is so much ignorance on the topic of GMO foods. This book explains why.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Altered Genes, Twisted Truth?

The fact that 9 of the FDAs own scientists have questioned whether GMOs are safe based on science and that not one American media outlet would report this fact.


Which scene was your favorite?

This book is so full of facts on the history of how GMOs have become accepted in this country. It reads like a a conspiracy novel, because it is a conspiracy.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes it made me cry to hear the story of how our regulatory agencies fail in their duties to protect the people and the envirinment.
