The monarch has become a symbol in the ongoing, critical struggle to stop genetically engineered (GE) foods. On May 20, 1999, Cornell University scientists announced that GE corn kills monarch larvae. This tragedy is a small portent of the catastrophic potential of GE crops and foods on the worlds' food systems. GE foods are banned or restricted, for good reasons, in Canada, Europe, Japan and India. In the words of a French farmer, "It is time that Americans wake up to the crisis."
