I am not Catholic. I am pissed off. I am giving up Monsanto for Lent.
This is Day 15.
You’ve heard that Monsanto’s Roundup Ready alfalfa was approved in January 2011, right? This worries me even more than GM corn, papaya, or cotton. I can avoid consuming those. It’s not easy, but it can be done.
But as this article states, GM alfalfa threatens the pinnacle of paleo eating — grassfed meat:
“Alfalfa is an insect-pollinated crop. There is no way to prevent cross-contamination from fields planted with Monsanto’s GMO alfalfa to other fields. These genes will contaminate the rest of America’s alfalfa crops within a few years.”
Grassfed cattle are often overwintered on alfalfa. So are my endurance horses.
I am Not. Pleased.
