The World According to Monsanto: Pollution, Corruption, and the Control of Our Food Supply


The World According to Monsanto: Pollution, Corruption, and the Control of Our Food Supply Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Published to stellar praise worldwide, The World According to Monsanto charts award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Marie-Monique Robins three-year journey across four continents to uncover the disturbing practices of multinational agribusiness corporation Monsanto.

The book exposes the shocking story of how the new “green” face of the worlds 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 worlds 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 worlds small-scale farmers.

Selected as a finalist for the New York Public Librarys 2011 Helen Bernstein Book Award for Excellence in Journalism, The World According to Monsanto is positioned to increase awareness of a serious threat to our food supply.
