Steven Druker - Genetically Modified Foods: A History of Deception


Ithaca, NY; September 14, 2016

Steven Druker is a public interest attorney who founded the Alliance for Bio-Integrity and, as its executive director, initiated a lawsuit that forced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods — which revealed that the agency had covered up the warnings of its own scientists about the risks and has been consistently misrepresenting the facts.

His influential book, Altered Genes Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public, was released in 2015 with a foreword by Jane Goodall hailing it as “without doubt one of the most important books of the last 50 years.”

This is Lecture #2 in the GMO WTF! series, an independent, student-led GMO lecture series at Cornell University.
