Description

A book that exposes the shocking story of how the new "green” face of the world’s leading producer of GMOs (genetically-modified-organisms) is no less malign than its PCB—and Agent Orange—soaked past.

Monsanto currently controls the majority of the yield of the world’s genetically modified corn and soy—ingredients found in more than 95 percent of American households—and its alarming legal and political tactics to maintain this monopoly are the subject of worldwide concern, with baleful consequences for the world’s small-scale farmers.

In 2008 this story was also produced as a documentary film of the same name.
