More on GMO foods

Thirteen new genetically modified crops (GMOs) are awaiting USDA approval! Plus that GMO salmon is waiting for the FDA's blessing.

One of the many amendments to the federal budget bill that Congress just passed is one you might not have read about much. Section 735 allows Monsanto and other chemical companies to sell GMO seeds BEFORE they are approved! That is a big privilege, but one that affects you and me.

Even if their new GMO crops are ultimately proven to be harmful to human health or the environment, Section 735 allows them to be planted the minute the USDA approves them!

The floodgates would literally be open for Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical’s new GMO crops that are resistant to more toxic chemicals like 2,4-D, Agent Orange and dicamba that will replace failing Roundup Ready GMO crops.
