MONTSANTO IS RUNNING THE USDA
While other nations ban GMOs...........
In case it didn’t make it to your news table, the United States Department of Agriculture (headed by Tom Vilsack, Monsanto’s best buddy) has recently (in January) approved two more Monsanto-owned genetically modified crops – new strains of both GM corn and soy. Is it any question now who is running our government in the US? Monsanto is calling the shots, not the people who vote for Congress and Senate members.
“simply the latest example of USDA’s allegiance to the biotechnology industry and dependence upon chemical solutions. This continues the disturbing trend of more herbicide-tolerant crop approvals taking place under President Obama’s watch.”Should we be surprised, though, when the main man heading the Department of Ag is a member of one of the biggest biotechnology industry groups, the Biotechnology Industry Organization, who once named Vilsack Governor of the Year? Vilsack is also the founder and former chair of the Governor’s Biotechnology Partnership. So more GMO crop approval – of course!
The Environmental Protection Agency is about to approve Monsanto’s newest herbicide, as well, one that contains both dicamba and glyphosate.
Other countries have already banned GM crops as well as banning these noxious herbicidal probable carcinogens, but the US – well, we’re all about using more toxic chemicals.
