Author Henryk Behr had a good life – a very happy family life. But all it took was A Momentary Lapse of Reason to shatter his once happy reality. Two capsules of Source Naturals L- Tryptophan changed that forever. In his provocative autobiography, Behr shares his difficult ordeal living with L-Tryptophan induced EMS and exposes the hidden dangers of genetic modification of foods.

In this book, readers will find a record of tragedy, how the author’s life fell apart when L-Tryptophan destroyed his health, his relationships, and his life. It had given him a very rare, incurable, untreatable autoimmune condition known as Eosinophilia Myalgia Syndrome (EMS). The author also reveals his investigation into EMS, tryptophan and its production, as well as the GE and GM industries themselves.

Behr shares, “I decided to try tryptophan to help sleep better. It was marketed to help me with this. This was a terrible mistake which has cost me my health, my happy relationships and quite possibly my life itself. It has already severely disabled me.”

The author believes that his book is the first of its kind, a day-by-day account from a sufferer of a disease caused by the genetic tampering of a naturally harmless substance. This firsthand narrative on living with the horrors of EMS doubles as an exposé on the dangers of genetic engineering and modification inherent in corrupt US government policy decisions favoring biotech industry profits above and beyond the health of citizens. It also serves as a strong warning of what may be to come for many others unless the madness which is genetic engineering of foodstuff is brought down to its festering knees forever.
