|Tell President Obama that you don’t want organic and conventional agriculture contaminated by GE Alfalfa, and that you have a right to eat meat, dairy, and eggs from livestock who consume non-genetically engineered crops.|
Monsanto’s controversial genetically engineered alfalfa threatens to contaminate both conventional and organic agriculture year after year with the spread of its foreign DNA. Alfalfa, a perennial crop with a pollination radius as large as 5 miles, is open-pollinated by bees and other insects. It is the fourth most widely grown crop in the U.S. and a fundamental source of livestock forage for dairy and beef farmers. And don’t forget to tell him that you don’t want to eat honey contaminated with man-made genetic material either! Ask the president if he trusts this, untested, novel approach to producing food for his two girls.
