The USDA is allowing the GMO industry to conduct its own environmental impact studies (on Monsanto's Roundup Ready sugar beets) - proving that they are allowing the GMO industry to self-regulate. 

Allowing these studies to be conducted from within the GMO industry may not show the (true) impact of the GMO's that have overtaken our agricultural system.  The USDA is putting profit and industry ahead of the safety of our food systems, our personal health, and our environment.  The continuation of this relationship between big business and our government is putting US at risk - and we must tell them we have had enough.

Let us stand up together and tell our government that we are not going to sit back while they hand over our food security to corporations like Monsanto.  Let us stand up for safe, healthy, secure, and sustainable agriculture - and stop this criminal relationship between our government and these giant corporations.

      I do not see how anyone could find this less than preposterous. Let's not undermine our society for the good of a monstrous corporation's pocket books.

      If the USDA were doing it's job there would be no GMOs on the market.

      Wow, the govt spend time and money going after small amish farmers selling raw milk to consenting adults who know and want what they are buying, but want to let the GMO industry police itself with it's impact studies? The US govt is a joke. It's for sale to the highest bidder. Do the right thing for gods sake!
