MAUMEE, OH (Toledo News Now) -
MAUMEE, OH.--There were worldwide protests Saturday against Monsanto, including one in Maumee.
Protesters are asking folks to say no to GMOs.
GMOs are Genetically Modified Organisms.
Approximately, 200 protestors marched through the streets of Maumee to call attention to the alleged dangers of GMOs.
They claim GMOs lead to health problems and harm the environment.
"I'd be happy if it was gone. I don't want cancer. Studies of lab rats show they're full of cancer," said protester Derek Fisher.
GMOs are grown by Monsanto from seeds engineered to resist insecticides and herbicides, add nutritional benefits and improve crop yields.
"It's growing. They put it in the seeds and the farmers plant the seeds and it gets into the food supply like that," said protester Rick Hady.
Maumee was one of 250 protest sites.
Opponents are pushing for mandatory labeling, even though many scientists say the GMO technology is safe.
"We want the freedom to choose. Right now there's no freedom to choose. Monsanto covers it all up, they bribe lobbyists in Washington. 70 to 80 percent of everything on the shelf is essentially poisoned," said protester Danny Cobb.
Monsanto tells the Associated Press it respects the people's right to protest, but it believes the GMO seeds help farmers produce more food while conserving water and energy.
Farmers approached by Toledo News Now at the march refused to comment on the controversy.
