Pretty much anything you wanted to know about genetic modification of food (plant or animal) is in this book. However, new "novel" foods are constantly being approved, so the info may soon be incomplete. I was surprised to confirm that a 5-digit code starting with and 8 for grocery store fruits and veggies indicates a GMO. I have never seen such a code, but I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Definitely a must read. Your shopping dollar is the most important vote to prevent Corporate America from destroying life on this planet.

They already control the cancer industry, don't buy into it. This book instructs you how.

A must read, should you have any interest in what you actually are eating and how your food choices impact agriculture.

Everyone who cares even a tiny bit about their own health and the health of their family should read this book. Absolute must. The general public has a right to know the information in this book, (hence the appropriately chosen title). Highly recommend!!
