This is a fairly old book on the subject by now (1999) but still holds some essential data and a refreshing philosophical slant.
It fills in some of the science details about the chemistry of Bt toxins that I’ve been seeking (page 106), but still doesn’t follow the trail to the end. What other populations of animals are we exposing to these toxins? Kneen mentions earthworms, but doesn’t explain. What happens to the remainders of the Bt infused plants, the parts that should be composted? A lot of the product is used for various animal feeds. Has anyone looked in their guts to see whether there is harm?
He exposes Monsanto’s decision to dispose of logic and switch to symbols that convey their commitment to ‘saving the world’ but institutionalizing slavery and death for profit. ( )
