Candy giant Hershey's Brazilian subsidiary announced that it will not use sugar from Genetically Modified (GM) beets. The US division of Hershey's, however, said on December 4, 2007 that it would use GM sugar from Monsanto's Genetically Modified Roundup Ready sugar beets.
According to New West News, Kelloggs, Hershey's and Crystal Sugar had all reversed their seven year opposition to GM Sugar because "public resistance to GM foods seems to have faded." But, we do oppose genetically modified food. We do not want to eat crops grown from genetically modified seeds that can mutate human genes!
Genetically Modified (GM) crops are created by Monsanto to withstand exposure to Monsanto's pesticide Roundup. This modifying the genes of human with pesticides is Monsanto's "better living through chemistry" promise. Say NO to Genetically Modified (GM) foods.
