The following is taken from the web page of the Western Organization of Resource Councils.
"In its draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), issued on December 18, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) claims that there is no evidence that consumers care about genetically modified (GM) alfalfa.
Furthermore, USDA has completely dismissed the fact that GM contamination will threaten farmers domestic and export markets and organic dairy and meat products. USDA’s preliminary determination is to once again deregulate GM alfalfa without any limitations or protections for farmers, consumers or the environment."
You can read the entire article on the WORC website here and if you'd like to give the USDA an idea of just how much you do care (and I oh so hope you do!) you can do that here. GMO plants just do not belong on our earth!
