"Organic farming is rooted in ancient knowledge passed down through generations. Long before science could tell us why certain farming methods would produce greater crop yields, organic farmers were learning the hard way what worked and what didn't - and sharing their knowledge with others." David Suzuki

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public (Part One)

This book tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of the biggest scientific fraud in history, and how it has maintained its force in the face of overwhelming contrary evidence.
It describes how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world's food supply has routinely violated the standards of science and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and scores of esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products - and get them onto our dinner plates.

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. Nearly forty 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. 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 you look around at the environmental crisis enveloping our planet, do you ever stop and think "What Can I do?"
In Organic Manifesto, Maria Rodale, CEO of Rodale and granddaughter of the man who started the modern-day organic food movement, answers that question firmly: Buy organic food.
Going organic is the single most critical (and most DOABLE) action we can take right now to stop our climate crisis. Every acre of ground that's farmed organically has the potential to pull thousands of pounds of warming greenhouse gases out of our air. Plus, organic food is healthier for your family!

We can and must create a world that is more than sustainable, that is regenerative. It is time to begin the process of healing our world.

This explosive exposé reveals what the biotech industry doesn't want you to know-how industry manipulation and political collusion, not sound science, allow dangerous genetically engineered food into your daily diet.
Company research is rigged, alarming evidence of health dangers is covered up, and intense political pressure applied.
Read the actual internal memos by FDA scientists, warning of toxins, allergies, and new diseases-all ignored by their superiors, including a former attorney for Monsanto.
"This is a brilliant book which combines shrewd dissection of the true nature of GM technology, a devastating critique of the health and environmental hazards of GM crops, and scarifying examples of the manipulation of both science and the media by the biotech industry... What is so exciting about this book is that it is no dry text of scientific exegesis - it positively fizzes with the human drama of the cabals and conspiracies behind the scenes... It is meticulously documented and powerfully written, somewhere between a documentary and a thriller."

We have to ‘change course' for the sake of our own lives and the ‘greater life' which is our environment, our planet and our humanity. Changing Course is the single most crucial issue of our time, beacause our lives - and the life of our planet - are increasingly coming under the control of a regulatory system that is squeezing the life blood out of our joy of living, and is pushing us towards the cliffs of despair rather than the green pastures of our deeper aspirations.
