The fight against GMO
your help now
Things are heating up in the GMO wars. In California, an initiative is underway to force GMO labeling on all food products. My friend Joe Mercola, MD is helping us fight this battle here in California, as this state is the bellwether state for political action. What happens here usually happens around the country. And it’s already starting to happen.
Further east, two U.S. Senators have written a “Dear Colleague” letter and released it to the public on February 8. They urged their colleagues to support the labeling of GMO foods. This is the first of its kind in Congress. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get your Congressional representatives to listen to you for once, instead of predatory industry giants like Monsanto.
The Center for Food Safety has this to say: “Genetically engineered foods are required to be labeled in nearly 50 countries around the world including the United Kingdom, Australia, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, China, New Zealand, and many others. A recent poll released by ABC News found that 93% of the American public wants the federal government to require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. As ABC News stated, ‘Such near-unanimity in public opinion is rare.’ Yet the United States is one of the only countries in the world that doesn’t require labeling of GE food!”
It’s time for that to change! Please call or email your legislators repeatedly this month (the close date is Wednesday, February 29th). If your representative is listed below, make sure you call him directly and have all your friends call. These are key individuals in this fight. And we need to encourage them to support the labeling of GE salmon and other foods. The list below contains their District phone number.
