Additional Information

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.

This was an interesting read. Steven Druker, filed a lawsuit against the FDA The book, Altered Genes, Twisted Truth, features a foreword by the renowned primatologist Dame Jane Goodall, hailing it as “without doubt one of the most important books of the last 50 years”.The book is the result of more than 15 years of intensive research and investigation by Druker, who came to prominence for initiating a lawsuit against the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that forced it to divulge its files on GM foods. Those files revealed that GM foods first achieved commercialisation in 1992 only because the FDA:

• Covered up the extensive warnings of its own scientists about their dangers.
• Lied about the facts.
• And then violated federal food safety law by permitting these foods to be marketed without having been proven safe through standard testing.

The book points out that if the FDA had heeded its own experts’ advice and... Read more
Altered Genes, Twisted Truth meticulously documents the case against the U.S. government’s laissez-faire policy on genetically engineered foods.

Author Steven Druker raises an interesting parallel between computer systems and genetic manipulation. While computer systems – especially those that are life-dependent and life-sustaining – are carefully tested and retested to make sure that no “glitch” or “bug” could cause catastrophic harm, alterations to the far more complex genetic code of plants are made without similar precautions. These novel plants are grown, harvested, and consumed with little or no independent testing.

Two far-reaching reviews of GMO safety studies—one conducted by the University of Minnesota and another spearheaded by Dr. Jose L. Domingo, editor in chief of the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology—both found that about half of the studies reviewed linked GMO consumption to health risks... Read more
Altered Genes, Twisted Truth clearly demonstrates how political and corporate considerations may trump science not only in our federal agencies, but even in the ivory towers of research science. This unhappy and, until now, largely unpublicized, saga therefore has implications far beyond agriculture or genetics. Author Steven Druker points out, with ample documentation, how for at least the past three decades, the public has been exposed to a faade of reassurance, while dissenting voices, however expert, experienced or distinguished, have been shunted aside, spurned, and even smeared. Today the Emperor’s clothes have surely been strewn about the landscape where genetically engineered foods are concerned, and those who doubt this need only follow the carefully documented steps in Altered Genes, Twisted Truth to comprehend the accuracy of this title. No matter which side of this debate you currently occupy, this book is a must read!
