Description

""This incisive and insightful book is truly outstanding. Not only is it well-reasoned and scientifically solid, it's a pleasure to read-and a must-read." -David Schubert, PhD, molecular biologist and Head of Cellular Neurobiology, Salk Institute for Biological Studies "Lucid, illuminating, and alarming. As a former New York City prosecutor, I was shocked to discover how the FDA illegally exempted GE foods from the rigorous testing mandated by federal statute. And as the mother of three young kids, I was outraged to learn how America's children are being callously exposed to experimental foods that were deemed abnormally risky by the FDA's own experts." -Tara-Cook Littman, JD "Steven Druker's meticulously documented, well-crafted, and spellbinding narrative should serve as a clarion call to all of us." -Stephen Naylor, PhD, CEO and Chairman of MaiHealth Inc., Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, and Pharmacology, Mayo Clinic (1991-2001) "A great book. The evidence is comprehensive and irrefutable; the reasoning is clear and compelling. No one has documented other cases of irresponsible behavior by government regulators and the scientific establishment nearly as well as Druker documents this one." -John Ikerd, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Agricultural and Applied Economics, University of Missouri "A landmark. It should be required reading in every university biology course." -Joseph Cummins, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Genetics, Western University, London, Ontario "A beautiful job. The examination of genetic engineering from the standpoint of software engineering is especially insightful, exposing how the former is more like a 'hackathon' than a careful, systematic methodology for revising complex information systems." -Thomas J. McCabe, developer of the cyclomatic complexity software metric, a key analytic tool in computer programming employed throughout the world "Steven Druker is a hero. He deserves at least a Nobel Prize." -Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE and UN Messenger of Peace (from the Foreword)"
