A message from the Cornucopia Institute regarding Genetically Engineered Alfalfa
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.
Unfortunately, the USDA is moving towards approval of GE Alfalfa. Contact President Obama today and let him hear your voice. To view Cornucopia’s alfalfa factsheet, click here.
