"Monsanto, enemy of organic farmers and anti-GMO advocates alike, will likely be allowed to conduct its own environmental studies as part of a two-year USDA experiment. But there is no good that can possibly come of an experiment where the company behind nearly every genetically modified crop in our daily diets is allowed to decide whether its products are causing any environmental harm. ... Because the USDA is so bad at doing its job on time, the agency decided to see if anyone else was prepared to do its safety testing work instead." (04/25/11)
