Rally against Monsanto and GMO foods this weekend

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

People across Arizona and around the world will be hitting the streets this weekend, taking a stand against genetically-modified foods.

On Saturday, the March against Monsanto will be held in hundreds of cities.

Here in the valley, activists are expected to march in Tempe.

Monsanto manufactures genetically-modified seeds, including corn and soybean. They're engineered to resist insecticides and herbicides.

The company says it benefits farmers, but consumers say it hurts their health. Activists want food to be labeled indicating they contain GMOs.

Video: Press play to see our interview with Dr. Martha Grout with the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine. She explains what GMOs do to our bodies and what kinds of food are genetically modified.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
