It was twenty years ago last month that Food & Water published our report on Vermont’s atrazine addiction, a toxic herbicide that is banned in Europe but continues to be used in abundance on Vermont’s 92,000 acres of GMO-derived feed corn – all for dairy cows.

STAND UP – For Food Safety. This 4-minute doc urges citizens to mobilize, ban contaminants in our food supply and take back the food system.

Act locally to have these unsafe products banned from what we eat.
