Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods

by Jeffrey M. Smith (Author)

Editorial Reviews

“When I worked at Monsanto, I warned both scientists and executives that our GM
foods may cause disease, but no one was even willing to listen, let alone
investigate the unpredicted side effects. For them, it was all about profit. Now
our whole population is threatened by the serious dangers described in Genetic
—Kirk J. Azevedo, DC

“Congratulations, Jeffrey Smith, for your courage. Thanks to your tireless
investigations, we need wonder no longer why corporations spreading GMOs are so
secretive, why they’ve spent hundreds of millions to keep us from even knowing
which foods contain GMOs. They don’t want us to examine the shoddy science, the
suppressed evidence, and, most of all, the real health risks that GMOs present.
Read Genetic Roulette not only to protect yourself and your family but to learn
through this breath-taking story what all Americans need to do to reclaim our
democracy and protect our planet.”
— Frances Moore Lappé, author of Democracy’s Edge and Diet for a Small Planet

“I used to test for soy allergies all the time, but now that soy is genetically
engineered, it is so dangerous that I tell people never to eat it—unless it says
organic. Genetic Roulette tells you why you must avoid genetically engineered
foods to stay healthy.”
—John H. Boyles, MD, ear, nose, and throat, and allergy specialist

“Jeffrey Smith is the leading world expert in the understanding and
communication of the health issues surrounding genetically modified foods.
Genetic Roulette, which brings in original contributions by eminent scientists
worldwide, makes it crystal clear that the American FDA should not be so
cavalier about the potential dangers of these procedures.”
—Candace Pert, PhD, author of Molecules of Emotion and Everything You Need to
Know to Feel Go(o)d and former Chief of the Section, National Institutes of

“The most comprehensive, well-documented, and highly readable exposé on the
serious health dangers of GM foods.”
—Samuel S. Epstein, MD, professor emeritus of Environmental Medicine, University
of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health and chairman, Cancer Prevention

“This is the authentic book on genetic modification that the world has been
waiting for. . . . The case presented is absolutely a smoking shotgun that
should stop in its tracks any dabbling with GM foods, whether by individual
families, food companies, or indeed nations. . . . Jeffrey Smith is one of the
great campaigners of our age, a relentless pursuer of the truth, a fearless
advocate in the corporate world of secret influence, and a ceaseless promoter of
the public interest across the world. He is the modern David against the GM
Goliath. This book may well provide the sling-shot to change the global course
of events this century.”
—Excerpts from the foreword by Michael Meacher, MP, former UK government
environment minister

Product Description
Eating genetically modified food is gambling with every bite.
The biotech industry’s claim that genetically modified (GM) foods are safe is
shattered in this groundbreaking book. Sixty-five health risks of the foods that
Americans eat every day are presented in easy-to-read two-page spreads. The left
page is designed for the quick scanning reader; it includes bullets,
illustrations, and quotes. The right side offers fully referenced text,
describing both research studies and theoretical risks. The second half of
Genetic Roulette shows how safety assessments on GM crops are not competent to
identify the health problems presented in the first half. It also exposes how
industry research is rigged to avoid finding problems.
This book, prepared in with input by more than 30 scientists, is for anyone
wanting to understand GM technology, to learn how to protect themselves, or to
share their concerns with others. It is presented in the clear, accessible style
that made Jeffrey Smith’s Seeds of Deception the world’s best-selling book on
genetically engineered foods. As the world’s most complete reference on the
health risks of GM foods, Genetic Roulette is also ideal for schools and libraries.
