Label GMO Now, We Have the Right to Know!
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are in 75% of the packaged foods in supermarkets, but most of us don’t even know what GMOs are. That’s not so surprising since there are no regulations that require manufacturers to label GMO products.
Yet in poll after poll, Americans have clearly stated that they want GMO labeling, and a majority say they would be less likely to purchase foods that contained GMO. No wonder Big Ag has lobbied so hard to prevent labeling! Without labeling, we can’t make informed decisions and our right to choose our food is crippled.
In the last year alone, the USDA approved three new GM crops: alfalfa, sugar beets, and a type of corn used for ethanol. Any day, fast-growing GM salmon may be approved by the FDA. More and more genetically modified foods are making their way into our food system, and we have no way to identify them.
GMO labeing is required in the E.U., Russia, China, and many other nations. Consumers are empowered to choose whether or not they want GMO foods in their diet. Why shouldn't Americans be allowed the same freedom of choice?
Tell the FDA that we won't take ignorance for an answer. Insist on GMO labeling; sign our petition to the FDA today!
For more information on the dangers posed by GMOs, see our blog post What You Don't Know about GMOs CAN Hurt You.
Genetically modified organisms (GMO) have long been part of our food supply, but mounting evidence suggests that these products pose serious threats to our health, environment and economy.
The disclosure of GMO products is strictly required in the E.U., Russia, China, Japan, Australia, and many other nations. Americans should be allowed the same freedom of choice.
The solution is clear: Mandate labeling of GMO products now. We have the right to know what's in our food.
