Monsanto's Micro-Monster Could Kill Us All
Monsanto has unleashed a micro-monster that could kill us all.
That's according to Dr. Don Huber, an agricultural scientist and expert in microbial ecology, who's convinced that Monsanto's genetically engineered "RoundUp Ready" crops are responsible for a new micro-monster that's causing an outbreak of new plant, animal and human diseases.
Please watch Dr. Joseph Mercola's interview with Dr. Huber and then write USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, as Dr. Huber has, and urge him to place a moratorium on Monsanto's RoundUp Ready crops until scientists learn more about this deadly micro-monster.

Support the OCA and the OCF
Thank you to everyone who has supported our work in 2011! Everyone who has donated, volunteered, and everyone who has signed our Action Alerts!
You've made it possible to continue the transition to an organic future by safeguarding organic standards and fighting back against the biotech bullies and their indentured politicians, supporting state and federal legislative reforms, educating the public, and organizing nationwide protests.
In 2012, we plan to fight even harder. With the 2012 California ballot initiative, we have a real chance to hit Monsanto with the skull and crossbones they fear so much - mandatory labels on genetically engineered food.
Please be as generous as you can this holiday season.

Demand Regulatory Review of GMOs!
Sadly, just as scientists are beginning to get the word out about the worst dangers of GMOs, the USDA is giving up the little regulatory review it has over these crops. The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is letting companies like Monsanto police themselves and determine whether their GMOs will pose environmental risks.

Get GMOs Out of Baby Food!
Thanks to all of you who have taken action to get genetically engineered nutracueticals, namely Martek Biosciences' Life'sDHA and Life'sARA, out of certified organic infant formula, baby food and dairy products.
Your letters are beginning to have an impact. Many of you have shared the responses you've received from your congresspersons and it looks like at least a few Members of Congress care about organic integrity and are willing to communicate with the National Organic Program to get to the bottom of this.
