Government Without A Brain

The USDA has announced an interim rule that will allow for controversial
"biopharm" crops, genetically engineered to create industrial chemicals
and/or pharmaceuticals, to be grown as close as a mile from food crops
such as corn. According to the Campaign to Label Genetically Engineered
Food, since corn pollen is known to be able to travel well over a mile,
"the USDA's rules will inevitably lead to industrial chemicals and
pharmaceutical drugs contaminating the food supply." The Organic
Consumers Association is actively involved in addressing these issues
via dialogue with the USDA. Take action by signing the petition for a
global moratorium on GE Foods.
