Steven M. Druker a public interest attorney and founder of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting technologies that foster human and environmental health, is well qualified to speak on the topic of GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) in the food supply. In 1998 he organized a lawsuit against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that forced it to divulge its files on genetically engineered (GE) foods and revealed how the FDA covered up the warnings of their own scientists and deliberately broke the law to promote biotechnology and bring GMO foods to market.
During the process of organizing his case for the lawsuit, he assembled an extraordinary cadre of eminent scientists and religious leaders to stand with the Alliance as co-plaintiffs. The suit marked the first time scientists had sued a federal administrative agency on the grounds that one of its policies is scientifically unsound.
Dr. Druker is also the author of the powerful book “Altered Genes, Twisted Truth –How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public.” I hope to see this powerful and well written book becoming the “Silent Spring” of this era. You certainly will be hearing more about this book from me.
What follows is the first part of an interview of Dr. Druker by natural health expert Dr. Mercola. If the opening doesn’t disturb you, it should. A manufacturer, anywhere in the world, that has created genetically altered foods that didn’t work out right can dump them on the American market without informing the FDA or providing warnings or labels to the public.
I have mixed emotions about this interview and book. I’m outraged at what has been going on behind our backs and excited it is being exposed. What are your reactions to the first part of this interview? Please share them with us below.
