In Altered Genes, Twisted Truths, Steven Druker documents the collusion between the pesticide industry and its media apologists in their efforts to obscure the truth about the health-risks and efficacy of GMO’s in agriculture.
The book chronicles a decades-long manipulation of public opinion on the subject, revealing how both corrupted government agencies and mainstream media-outlets have been selective about what they report in order to appease the interests of the GMO industry.
Meticulously documented througout, the book uses both comprehensive research and creative metaphors to convey legitimate concerns of the dangers of genetic modification.
“Even the most complex human-made system seems simple compared to nature’s software.” writes Druker, “We do not know what all the components are, nor do we fully understand how they are arrayed. Although DNA is commonly regarded as the locus of a cell’s information system, the evidence indicates that the system is not fully localized within that molecule-and that some of its most important parts reside elsewhere.”
