Action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

The biotech industry keeps promising to solve major problems, from world hunger to malnutrition. Instead, they’ve given us herbicide-resistant and pesticide-producing crops, increasing Americans’ exposure to toxic chemicals. And guess what’s the latest genetically engineered crop that’s heading for your plate? Apples that never turn brown.
