Altered Genes, Twisted Truth

FDA fraud is exposed in Steven Druker’s newly released book Altered Genes, Twisted Truth. OSGATA President Jim Gerritsen offers insight into what he calls a “game-changer” with this recent WZON interview [9:13].

Some may remember Druker as the public interest lawyer who sued the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the late ’90s. Gerritsen summarizes, “Through the discovery process of that lawsuit, he was able to, for the first time, uncover internal FDA documents which proved that FDA scientists had serious concerns about the safety of GMO food. Yet political decisions were made by politicians to ignore the concerns of those scientists and to allow genetically engineered foods to come into the food system without any testing. They are explosive revelations.”

He continues that the book holds the possibility to change the dynamic of Right-to-Know GMO labeling initiatives across the country. The public’s concerns over GMOs are further validated by Druker’s expose. “The government has failed at its basic requirements of protecting the public interests,” said Gerritsen.

The truth, as expressed in Altered Genes, Twisted Truth, counters the rising tide of GMO propaganda. “GMO crops are a danger to the people, they do not yield more, they cause greater environmental harm than traditional crops,” said Gerritsen.
