This fall, Monsanto, the corporation who produces roughly 90% of the world’s genetically modified seeds, will try to bring their new, GMO sweet corn to a grocery store aisle or farmer’s market near you.
Unlike Monsanto’s other GMO crops — which are primarily fed to animals — this sweet corn is intended for direct human consumption.
This is the first time Monsanto has engineered a vegetable that could be served straight to your dinner table. And if this unlabeled, and potentially toxic crop succeeds, Monsanto is sure to bring us even more.
As an activist and consumer, we are in a powerful position to pressure leading U.S. grocery stores to reject Monsanto’s new GMO corn.
I just signed a petition telling major grocery stores around the country that I don’t want Monsanto’s sweet corn on the shelves. Will you join me and help stop this unsafe food?
