Use the form below to tell American Public Media, which produces the Marketplace program frequently aired on NPR, to stop taking Monsanto's money and spreading their lies.

Anna Lappe, a globally respected author on food issues, commented on the transcript of the story on the Marketplace website: "I appreciate many of the comments posted so far.
