Preceding the news yesterday that more than 1 million Americans have signed the petition calling on the FDA to label genetically modified (GMO) foods came more unsettling news about the biotech industry’s assault on our children’s minds. A primer on “biotechnology basics” for school children is being distributed by the trade group made up of major GMO companies including Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta and others. Unsurprisingly, the kids’ activity book is chock full of fun “facts” (read: distortions and lies) about the positive role biotechnology plays in our lives.
We think kids should know about GMO foods, since our children will be the first generation who will be eating these risky, untested foods for their entire lives. So we created The ABCs of GMOs to set the record straight, with fun activities for the whole family! Check it out!
