Groups sue USDA Challenging Genetically Engineered Alfalfa Approval

Groups sue USDA Challenging Genetically Engineered Alfalfa Approval.

I thought I might write a letter, in crayon, to all my representatives that reads, “I like ice cream. Please stop GE alfalfa.” At the bottom would be a picture of someone happily licking ice cream and the other side would be a toxic dead cow with an x through it. At least then Congressman Herger might understand the point of the message. Except that he wouldn’t make the connection between ice cream and alfalfa because he probably thinks that ice cream comes from your grocer’s freezer and that dairy cows eat corn from the feed store, if he even realizes the connection between dairy and ice cream. Now I just need to induce lactation so that I can make my own ice cream.

The people are speaking, with their wallets. We want food that is nutritious and wholesome and sustainable. Not watery, toxic sludge.
