The Franken-Grass runs WILD and FREE! Comments Needed!

Take Action

A recent study released by the EPA found GE bentgrass up to 14 miles from the test site, far outside of the buffer zones set by the Department of Agriculture. Contamination followed wind patterns and included both plants set specifically to be tests for cross-pollination and wild species that just happened to be in the neighborhood. Overall, the study found a significant number of new Round-Up Ready plants outside of the buffer zone. It also called for future studies to see if the ambitious, law-breaking grass will persist in the wild.

New California Alliance Against GE crops Forms

Take Action


As more than a dozen California counties launch campaigns to ban the

moved and not re-registered to vote, signs the petition twice or believes
they are a registered voter but are not.

She said the goal is to collect at least 9,000 signatures.

For humans, we won't overstate the case - there isn't 100% proof that the use of rBGH in cows increases antibiotic resistance and cancer rates in us. But, we won't understate the case either - there is a substantial, growing body of scientific data pointing in this direction. It defies common sense that we are human guinea pigs for this drug that has not been demonstrated to be safe and has no benefits whatsoever for the consumer.
