He then refused to drink it when offered a glass by the interviewing journalist.

On February 13 (2015), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved the first GMO apple, genetically engineered to not turn brown after it's sliced. The company that makes the apple wants you to believe that consumer demand was behind the invention. But the real target customers for GMO ...

Genetically manipulated foods may be one of the most serious threats not only to our environment but to the health and very survival of future generations.

PLEASE WEIGH IN: In a The New York Times​ op-ed today, the author accuses Monsanto and the U.S. government of making us "guinea pigs" in a giant, uncontrolled experiment involving the use of Monsanto's cancer-causing glyphosate. The accusation has generated a lot of lively comments--many of which read as though they were written by Monsanto itself. Can you take time to read and comment today?

But this scheme is discriminatory and still allows companies to hide ingredients.TAKE ACTION! Tell Vilsack: Consumers want GMO labels, not barcodes! http://orgcns.org/1wLHXBz
