If you have been near a market lately that sells organic food, then you have probably encountered volunteers informing the public about genetically engineered foods. And, they are collecting signatures on a petition to demand labeling of GE foods. 1.1 million names have been uploaded to the FDA. Go to this website: justlabelit.org, and read the FDA’s unbelievable response.
However, the public is not finished. Ninety-one percent of the American people want their food labeled to show if it has been genetically engineered.
If you don’t know what all this hoopla is about, go to this portion of the website and read the brief, but concise description of genetically engineered foods.
About GE Foods and the Debate. Read about the dangers of this experiment, and that is exactly what it is, and if you believe this is important (Remember, our grandchildren will be eating long after we are gone) you can sign the petition on this site: Just Label It I believe we should have a choice, regarding our health.
It is a sad commentary on our times, but I believe, as do many folks, that the FDA is broken, i.e. recalled drugs, contaminated foods, pink slime meat, etc. etc. In many ways, we really are on our own, with regard to safety. Fortunately, we have watchdogs, and social media to help us stay informed. We must educate ourselves, and a positive action that I always encourage: Buy local and buy organic.
Thank you for paying attention, and taking action.
