The Gmo Trilogy And Seeds of Deception Set

by Jeffrey M. Smith (Author)



Book Description
Now Jeffrey M. Smith’s best-selling book is paired with a new DVD and CD set
that shows how genetically modified organisms (GMOs) put our health and
environment at risk. This set will impact consumer perceptions and buying
habits. DVD 1: Unnatural Selection: This stunning, award-winning documentary by
Bertram Verhaag and Gabriele Kröber reveals harsh consequences of genetic
engineering on three continents. Vandana Shiva, Andrew Kimbrell, Percy Schmeiser
and others, describe uncontrollable, self-replicating GM contamination, failed
crops, farmer suicides, and new GM animals that threaten natural populations.
DVD 2: Hidden Dangers in Kids’ Meals: Genetically Engineered Foods: Shocking
research results, inadequate regulations and warnings from eminent scientists
explain why GM foods are dangerous and should be removed from kids’ meals. The
dramatic story of how student behavior in a Wisconsin school was transformed
with a healthy diet provides added motivation to make a change. It features
Jeffrey Smith and more than a dozen scientists and experts. Audio CD: You’re
Eating WHAT?: Jeffrey Smith’s riveting one-hour talk. "The most powerful
presentation I have ever heard on the issue of genetically engineered
foods.–Craig Winters, The Campaign to Label Genetically Engineered Foods Seeds
of Deception: This is the top-rated, best selling book in the world on GM foods.
Smith exposes the serious health dangers of genetically modified foods and the
corporate cover-up. A fast-paced thriller of industry manipulation and political
collusion, combined with lucid descriptions of genetic engineering and guidance
on how to protect yourself and your family.

From the Publisher
From Publishers Weekly
Recent news headlines have focused on the disagreement between the U.S. and
Europe over genetically modified foods: the U.S. exports them, but the European
Union doesn't want to import them, believing their safety remains unproven. Are
genetically modified foods safe? Longtime anti-GM foods campaigner Smith
presents the "opposing" case. He offers cases where GM produced results that
were at best unexpected (increased starch content in potatoes), at worst
grotesque (pigs without genitals). He describes how one corporation reportedly
tried to bribe Canadian government scientists into approving genetically
engineered bovine growth hormones they deemed unsafe; how some scientists have
reported their careers were threatened as a result of their refusal to approve
certain GM products in the U.S.; and how "conflicts of interest, sloppy science,
and industry influence" can distort the approval process. The cases Smith
presents are scary and timely, but he explores only one side of the story.
Readers looking for a balance consideration of genetically modified foods will
want to look elsewhere.
