Former Iowa Governor and Secretary of the USDA, Tom Vilsack, has decided to grant Monsanto the privilege of drafting the environmental impact studies concerning their genetically engineered products.  As governor of Iowa, Tom Vilsack worked to promote “bio-technology” by supporting pharmaceutical crops, including corn in

the great farming state of Iowa.  Pharmaceutical crops are grown specifically to develop new pharmaceuticals for bio-tech companies like Monsanto to research and develop.  These crops have the ability to contaminate Organic crops that neighbor them.  This move by Vilsack and the USDA follows the decisions in January to fully deregulate the genetically engineered alfalfa that has been approved for production and distribution.

The USDA has a mandate by the federal government to regulate and monitor the systems of agriculture and corporate business practice relating to agriculture in the Untied States.  Now Monsanto will be solely responsible for the environmental impacts that genetically engineered crops may have on the planet.  Do you think Monsanto can be trusted to provide accurate information regarding the environmental impacts of its genetically engineered products?
