Mickey Z.

Writer and activist Mickey Z. concisely explains everything that's wrong and bad about genetically modified crops (GMOs), particularly Monsanto's GMOs.  He shows what's wrong economically, environmentally, nutritionally, politically, you name it.

But GMOs (and Monsanto) are a part of a larger evil--globalized, monopolistic, animal-products-based corporate agribusiness. And that is part of an even larger evil: "the whole System." 

But people have the power to bring about change, and Mickey Z offers some suggestions and examples.

With an introduction by KD, who finds the mindset that gave us agribusiness and GMOs close to home.
