Stop Genetically Engineered Food

The agribusiness in this country has hijacked your market basket. When confronted with the business practices of such giants like Monsanto, Cargill and Arthur Daniels Midland, three of the big players who influence EVERYTHING you eat and you see how we, the public, have let a good amount of the control leave our hands, it is time to keep the little we have left. Two documentaries that helped inform me about the far reaching tentacles are : "Food Inc." and "Dirt. The Movie"

I copied and pasted the text below. This is important and while I do not agree with everything proposes, this one hits home, literally. Take a minute, read the text then hit the link and sign and leave a comment which I neglected to do. The last sentence states if you do not leave a comment the FDA does not consider your signature important enough to count.

Why this is Important

In a country that labels everything from cosmetics to cleaning agents, it’s surprising that there are no laws in the U.S. requiring labeling of genetically engineered foods. Yet 93% of Americans believe GE foods should be labeled.

We don’t think that’s right.

Many other countries including Japan, Australia, the European Union and even China require labeling of genetically engineered foods.

Tell the FDA you have a right to know what’s in your food.

Healthy Child Healthy World has joined an effort with hundreds of organizations representing millions of Americans called “Just Label It: We Have A Right to Know.” We’ve petitioned the FDA to demand that products that use ingredients produced with genetic engineering be required to disclose this information on the label.

Please sign-on AND LEAVE A COMMENT! Without a personalized comment, the FDA won't count you as a supporter. THANK YOU!
