USDA may allow biotech to police itself

Submit Comments

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has aided  Monsanto and the biotech lobby by failing to accurately assess the environmental and climate impacts of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), just as they have failed to properly assess the damage done by chemical agriculture. Now, APHIS wants to turn over the job of conducting environmental assessments to biotech companies like Monsanto that have a vested interested in getting their new GMOs deregulated.
