Do you know anyone, as I do, who just doesn't get what the big deal is about GMOs? This book by F. William Engdahl is foundational reading for them and you, if you haven't already read it. The book's description from Amazon is accurate, but only scratches the surface:
This skillfully researched book focuses on how a small socio-political
American elite seeks to establish its control over the very basis of
human survival, the provision of our daily bread. Control the food and
you control the people. This is no ordinary book about the perils of
GMO. Engdahl takes the reader inside the corridors of power, into the
backrooms of the science labs, behind closed doors in the corporate
boardrooms. The author reveals a World of profit-driven political
intrigue, government corruption and coercion, where genetic manipulation
and the patenting of life forms are used to gain worldwide control over
food production. The book is an eye-opener, a must-read for all those
committed to the causes of social justice and World peace.
Of particular interest to Christians, the book's "Afterword" quotes Pope Benedict XVI from his April 14, 2006, Good Friday address, in which he makes a clear and bold declaration condemning genetic engineering scientists as being "anti-Genesis." He warns against attempts to "modify the very grammar of life as planned and willed by God" and those who "play at being God." Incredibly, his comments were buried by the international media.
