My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is a must read for all who eat.
Paul Roberts shows clearly how the modern food economy is no longer safe for the billions it feeds.
The historical and political context that has resulted in this current situation are explained.
The book was first published in 2008 when the current studies by Seralini and Thai researchers which clearly show the relationship of glyphosate, GMO's and human cancers were not available.
Both these studies however add further weight to the conclusions of this book that new and more sustainable ways of producing and marketing food are urgent before our current system creates a catastrophic situation or simply fails because of the inherent weakness of its structures.
