great GMO policy article
this comes to us from greenhorn Eric Budzynski, who has this to say:
Howdy Fellow Greenhorns!
This is a great article on GMO regulation coming from a major news outlet. Not only is this a good intro to the issues for those who have not heard much about it, but it also raises some pretty startling issues regarding the review and regulation process. For starters, they describe how the patents on Monsanto's genetic material actually legally bar their products from being studied by independent scientists. So, the information supplied to the USDA and other regulatory bodies that is used to determine if a GMO product is safe is coming right from the company that produces it. Wowza!
