review by Bob Banning
In this self-published book, Caius Rommens, a former genetic engineer who developed GMO potatoes as an employee of a potato company, wants to warn us about these potatoes.

He supports his argument with 109 endnotes, most of which appear to be citing scientific and trade journals.

He left his employer because he couldn’t in good conscience continue to do the work that his position required.
