The Organic Elite Surrender to Monsanto: What Now?

A rather upsetting article I recently read on the Organic Consumer’s Association website, outlines the defeat of a 12-year battle against Monsanto and GE alfalfa, led by Whole Foods, Stonyfield Farm, and Organic Valley. Basically they have given into Monsanto, calling for a “co-existence” of GMO and non-GMO foods, and in return, farmers, whose crops will be contaminated in the future, and there’s absolutely no doubt that will happen, will receive “hush money” from Monsanto.

The article goes on to outline the difference in GE labeling policies in the European Union, as opposed to the United States. GE labeling is mandated by the EU government, however, it is not here, in the US. Many of the “natural” brands you are purchasing in stores, such as Whole Food Market, are contaminated with GMOs!!! There’s nothing natural about that.  I urge you to read the whole article here: http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_22449.cfm

Please take a moment to sign the petition against Monsanto and for the labeling of GE products at the bottom of the article. Thank you!!
