GMO labeling bill gets backing from natural-food, supplement group. We need your vote too!

"The nation's largest trade group for natural products is getting behind a legislative effort to require that consumers know when their food has been genetically modified." This quotation from Julian Hattem in this blog tells it like it is. This is an important read. GMO labeling bill gets backing from natural-food, supplement group - The Hill's RegWatch


I often ask myself if GMO's are supposedly so safe (according to Monsanto and others that have tampered with our crops by genetically modifying them with toxic or allergen causing chemicals like Roundup®), why does Monsanto's UK facility serve no GMO foods in their corporate dining rooms?  Here's a list of the top six major players in agricultural genetic engineering in the private sector. Many of them have extensive plant breeding operations across the world, and then add transgenic traits to the varieties they breed.



By 2012, 88 percent of corn (maize) and 94 percent of soy grown in the United States were genetically modified, according to the US .

Why have these companies spent millions to stifle labeling? The answer may be fear, ignorance, and/or greed. And more to the point, why don’t more consumers use the power of their buck and wisdom to influence what’s sold and outlawed in our markets? Call or email your public officials, the FDA, and research facilities to state your views that these items need to be pulled from the shelves until proper research proves or disproves their merit. I for one do not want to die from this type of food poisoning. 

You have the right to know what you’re eating and it is essential to support legislation that at the minimum requires genetically modified foods sold in the U.S. to carry a mandatory label. Contact your food merchants, shops, and restaurants and express. Take a leap into sanity and shun those establishments that are not willing to take steps to change.
