About this book

Exposes the hidden links between scientists, corporations and HM Government that have warped policy on 3 potent issues: genetic engineering, BSE and Foot and Mouth disease. As Britain decides whether to become a GM Nation or go GM Free, the book exposes the myth of the GM revolution and asks searching questions about the safety of GM food. It details how the regulations on GM that are meant to protect us are inadequate and flawed.
'All you need to know to be effective in resisting the might of the global agri-business machine.' Tony Juniper, Friends of the Earth.

A good, informative read.' The Social Crediter 'As a book intended to spark an honest debate about food safety and the future of science, it certainly deserves admiration.'
