We appreciate your support.
The USDA is about to approve Monsanto's genetically engineered alfalfa. One of the biggest impacts of allowing GE alfalfa will be the contamination of non-GE crops, including organic alfalfa, which is used by most organic dairies. USDA acknowledges the problem of contamination, but is moving forward anyway – in response to tremendous pressure from big agribusiness interests.
We need to let the USDA know that consumers don't want genetically engineered foods, and don't want organic foods to be contaminated.
Tell Mr. Vilsack – in your own words – why GE alfalfa presents an unacceptable risk to public health and the integrity of organic. The more customized your comment, the more powerful it will be.
