This is a precise and accessible guide to the biotech industry's destructive control over our food. This book shows if and how genetically modified food is dangerous to our bodies. The information is well set out and well explained in terms of corporate business and politics, and concludes with what we can do about it. -- Green Shopping Catalogue This book has great pace and is very accessible to the lay public. The scientific content is technically accurate and I like the uncompromising position that it takes. Rees certainly seems to have the gift of capturing so much in so little space or 'capturing the ocean in a drop'. -- Dr Michael Antoniou, Reader in Molecular Genetics at Kings College, London, Guy's Hospital Campus The book reveals evidence and proof against the claims that GM food is beneficial for people, and, rather, illuminates the advantages for big businesses of GM food, seed patenting, and agribusiness... He expounds the risks and dangers to farmers and the environment, and exposes the deceptions of big business to conceal these hazards. The book documents successful opposition against GM foods by protest groups, but concludes with exhortations for vigilance in opposition against, what it labels, 'Genetic Tinkering'. -- Oxfam The timely publication of the book GM and the Corporate Takeover of Everything: a Short Guide for the Confused will give a great boost to all public-spirited citizens who do not want to be confused but want to be informed about what is going on in our troubled world and get the facts straight and not filtered through the biotechnology propaganda machine. Highly recommended!' -- Dr Arpad Pusztai, the world's leading expert on plant lectins Lies and spin are dissected and then pulverized in this copiously documented expose. Rees unmasks the biotech industry's horrific tactics in their race to take over our food supply and the devastation that their GM crops will inflict if we don't act quickly. -- Jeffrey M. Smith, international best-selling author, Seeds of Deception
