ACTION ALERT: Biotech Industry Launches New GMO Campaign in 2006
Following widespread opposition by farmers, bakers, environmentalists,health experts, and consumer organizations, Monsanto two years ago abandoned efforts to intro-duce genetically modified (GM) Roundup Ready wheat into the marketplace. No comprehensive studies have been done on the effects of GM foods on human health or the environment. GMfoods in the United States are not required to be labeled, and consumers have no way of makingan informed choice. In early 2006, Syngenta, one of the world’s largest biotech companies, teamed up with powerful trade associations and lobbyists to launch a new effort to introduce GMwheat.
