What You Don’t Know About the Food You’re Eating and What You Can Do to Protect Yourself: When genetically engineered food was introduced in America more than a decade ago, it was promoted as a solution to some of the world’s food problems; however, the promised advantages have never been realized. Beth H. Harrison, PhD, explores why these crops do not benefit consumers, do not feed the world, do not help the environment, and are not rigorously regulated. Yet the government and the biotechnology industry expend questionable efforts to “educate” consumers, the media, and politicians with propaganda championing genetically engineered food as safe and necessary. Meanwhile, an unsuspecting public continues to be force-fed untested, unlabeled food that carries potential adverse health effects.
Harrison provides a convincing argument as to why American consumers must question the collusion between their government and the biotechnology industry: their health—and yours—depends on it.
Did you know that you eat genetically modified foods every day?
This novel technology has virtually invaded the grocery store and taken over the food on our shelves. An estimated 70-75% of processed foods on supermarket shelves-from soda to soup, corn chips to veggie burgers, pizza, and even baby food and infant formula-contain GE ingredients. http://thetruthaboutgmos.com/index.html
