Won't help, people's minds are made up and the internet lies and misinformation is so widespread, and its all you seem to get when you google genetically modified foods. They will just say anything that Monsanto says is a lie.

They needed to be better at informing people from the get go, they should of expected this type of wariness form the people, who are usually frightened and untrusting of new breakthrough technologies. Now people will just see it as a PR move.

Monsanto should give all that lawsuit money back to the Mexican farmers.

Then they can think about improving their image.

Won't work till they do.
