Monsanto—one of the largest agriculture and biotech companies in the world—creates genetically engineered seeds and food, or GMOs. They've also brought us toxic chemicals like DDT, PCBs and even Agent Orange. But what is Monsanto truly doing to our diet—and why do many consider their business practices deeply abusive? Are GMOs the solution to world hunger, or a shockingly dangerous threat to our health? And does Monsanto really, as some suggest, control much of the United States' agriculture and food departments? Meticulously researched, Monsanto vs. the World puts to rest the myths and shows the shocking reality, delving into the science of GMOs, the political machinations of Monsanto in Washington and around the world, and showing what you can do to keep GMOs off your plate for good.
"Mr. Louv gives his readers the lowdown on corporate monsters like Monsanto and the big business of genetically-modified seeds. As always, his writing is clear, focused, and balanced. He is the Upton Sinclair of 2013, and I look forward to more of his reportage into these hard-hitting areas of social concern."
