You, too, can be a Granola Woman
As usual, the USDA is doing nothing to protect consumers, and considering deregulation of a genetically engineered plum, which they openly admit will contaminate organic and conventional plum orchards. The Center for Food Safety is asking for our help by way of comments to the USDA. |
This GE plum was designed to fight a virus that doesn't even exist in the United States. I think it's a way for the chemical companies (Monsanto, most likely) to open the door for future GE trees.
