Fighting a Common Enemy on the GMO Battlefield

Yesterday’s announcement by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that it will once again allow unlimited, nation-wide commercial planting of Monsanto’s genetically-engineered (GE) Roundup Ready alfalfa, despite the many risks to organic and conventional farmers, is deeply disturbing, but not surprising.

  • Well, one thing we can do is Stop Eating Beef and perhaps dairy all together. (that’ll hit em in the pocketbook)

  • Monsanto has a legendary history of lying to the public about their poisons. Remember DDT (1944-1972)? They said it was safe. Remember the horribly terrifying AGENT ORANGE (1961-1971)? They said it was safe. Now it’s GMO. I personally believe Monsanto to be truly evil in every sense of the word.

  • It’s hard to think of anything good about them.
