Walmart: Say NO to Monsanto's Genetically Engineered Sweet Corn!

Some hippie Luddite posted this change.org petition privately on Google+ (Why post a petition privately? The point is to maximize impact, no?) and I'm posting it in public so I could mock and heap scorn on it properly. Snopes has a good takedown, the studies that purportedly show dangerous side effects are flawed or retracted. Here's Wikipedia on genemod corn:
Broad scientific consensus holds that food derived from GM crops poses no greater risk to human health than conventional food.[32][33][34][35][36][37]
