Meanwhile, the resistance gene has spread to several weed species, making them immune to the herbicide. And some biotech genes have contaminated conventional crops, forcing major recalls and losses in the hundreds of millions of dollars, Freese and others noted

Well... That sucks. Kind of funny though since the whole point of the round-up gene is to be able to spray round-up, kill the weeds and not kill the corn.

Oh, do you remember the post about the plastic garbage in the Pacific Ocean? Here's another Pacific Ocean problem.

Nice story, I had never seen that one.

Monsanto also thinks any dairy that labels their milk hormone free should be banned from doing so. Fortunately so far the USA and State gov's have disagreed. Please keep in mind that it costs a lot of money to keep fighting them in court.

I have no connection to the Organic Consumers Association other than having sent them money and having used their work to try to keep my kids healthy.
