Emerging Farm Bill Could Make Frankenfoods Unstoppable



Be very, very afraid. At The Ethicurean site, Berkeley blogger DairyQueen reports on a predictably horrible turn the 2007 Farm Bill (now being shaped in Congress) may be taking. If new language cooked up by an agriculture subcommittee stands, the secretary of agriculture could override individual states' laws banning or restricting GMOs, otherwise known as Frankenfoods. That means that anti-GMO laws passed at the local level would be null and void.
