CBAN exposes GM apple
CBAN's campaign to stop the genetically engineered "nonbrowning" apple is gaining huge momentum - donate today to help us protect your apples!
CBAN is quoted in the New York Times story below which also reports on a Canadian consumer survey that shows 69% of us don't want the GM apple! The GM apple is engineered to not turn brown after being sliced. The NY Times quotes the President of the GM apple company saying a whole apple is “for many people too big a commitment”... Below is also an article that reports on the comments you sent to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
CBAN is coordinating this effective campaign to stop the GM apple with groups in BC and the U.S. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today. www.cban.ca/donate
