Book Recommendation: Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation

     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.
