Foreword / by Jane Goodall -- Introduction: How I reluctantly became an activist: and uncovered the crime that enabled the commercialization of genetically engineered foods -- The politicization of science: and the institutionalization of illusion -- The expansion of the biotech agenda: and the intensification of the politicization -- Disappearing a disaster: how the facts about a deadly epidemic caused by a genetically engineered food have been consistently clouded -- Genes, ingenuity, and disingenuousness: reprogramming the software of life while refashioning the facts -- Illegal entry: the governmental fraud that put GE foods on the US market -- Globalization of regulatory irregularity: how food safety officials in Canada, the EU, and other regions also sidestepped science and sound policy -- Erosion of environmental protection: multiple risks, minimal caution -- Malfunction of the American media: pliant accomplices in cover-up and deception -- Methodical misrepresentation of risk: oversights, anomalies, and delinquencies -- A crop of disturbing data: how the research on GE foods has failed to show they're safe, and instead confirmed they should be off the market -- Overlooked lessons from computer science: the inescapable risks of altering complex information systems -- Unfounded foundational assumptions: the flawed beliefs that undergird agricultural bioengineering -- The devolution of scientists into spin doctors: genetic engineering's most malignant mutation -- New directions and expanded horizons: abandoning genetic engineering and advancing to safe, sustainable, and sensible modes of farming -- Appendix A: Extended examination of the Judge's decision in Alliance for Bio-Integrity v. Shalala -- Appendix B: Two reports by other respected organizations that misrepresent the risks of GE foods
Druker discusses how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world's food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products--and get them onto our dinner plates
