The Union of Concerned Scientists, need your help in spreading the word about Monsanto’s failure to improve agriculture. Right now, the Monsanto Company is spending millions of dollars on ad campaigns and lobbying to convince you, and decision makers in Washington, that it is “improving” agriculture. With millions of dollars at their disposal, Monsanto puts forth widely-seen advertisements that tell an impressive tale of the agribusiness giant’s achievements: Feeding a growing population. Protecting natural resources. Promoting biodiversity. These claims are outrageously far from the truth. Join the UCS in fighting back against Monsanto’s ad campaign by sharing the truth about Monsanto and its unethical practices through twitter and facebook.
Take Action: Monsanto Fails, Say No to Synthetic Ingredients, Americans Against Fracking
Buying organic food is one to the few ways in which consumers can ensure that their food is free of a variety of chemicals and preservatives. That’s why it is so crucial that we lend our voices to a rule currently being considered by the USDA. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is seeking public comment on a rule that would keep in place its policy of allowing the indiscriminate and illegal addition of synthetic nutrients to organic foods. The nutrients found in our food should be naturally occurring, not synthethic versions produced in laborties and chemical factories. If you agree that organic foods should be free from unnecessary synthetic ingredients, as the federal organic regulations require, please make your voice heard.
