Monsanto in the News: Genetically engineered alfalfa isn't necessary

Genetically engineered alfalfa isn't necessary

But here's the main point about GMOs: You can't recall them the way you can a car or a plastic toy.
They're out there for good. And no one knows what their full impact will be.

I suppose the kindest thing you could say about this genetically engineered seed - developed to allow the plant to withstand applications of Roundup herbicide - is that it's unnecessary.

Polling has shown that most Americans dislike the idea of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) being introduced into the food supply, which is why the agricultural lobby blocks the labeling of products containing them.
We've said "No," but is anybody listening?
