That's probably a fair statement. It sure seems as if the FDA is in their pocket. We have to keep the pressure on from all directions, no matter what we've lost faith in. Not buying their products is getting harder to do but is another thing you can do at the same time. There are a lot of stop-Monsanto sites and petitions out there. All these efforts are probably too unfocused to be very effective.

Not buying their products is a great move.

The North American Millers Association (NAMA), a normally pro-biotech organization that represents 170 agricultural mills in 38 states, is concerned that Event 3271 kernels could accidentally mix with corn meant for food processing and damage the quality of food products like snacks and breakfast cereals. "USDA has failed to provide the public with sufficient scientific data on the economic impacts of contamination on food production, or information on how USDA will ensure Syngenta's compliance with a stewardship plan," said NAMA President Mary Waters. Fight the lies and misinformation; support truth! Please make a tax-deductible donation to Truthout today and keep real independent journalism strong. The USDA is counting on a "closed loop system" created by Syngenta to prevent Event 3272 corn from contaminating the food supply and is encouraging dialogue between Syngenta and the food industry, according to a release. The USDA is aware that some millers and food processors are concerned about Event 3272 and is promoting participation in an industry advisory council sponsored by Syngenta to review the "closed loop system."


in other words, they must have figured out to turn off the wind and get the birds and bees to ignore it all.
