Genetically modified foods — there’s little doubt in my mind that they’re poisonous to the earth and dangerous to our bodies — and I’m certainly not alone in this belief. As people across the country have grown increasingly concerned about the dangers of genetically modified foods, a coalition of more than 450 environmental, agricultural, consumer and parenting groups has formed to petition the FDA for the right to know which foods are genetically modified and which are not.
The campaign, known as “JUST LABEL IT: We Have the Right to Know,” is dedicated to the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods, also referred to as genetically modified, or GMOs. The JUST LABEL IT message is simple: consumers have a right to know what’s in their food so they can make informed choices about what they eat and feed their families. Such labeling will give American consumers the power to choose foods wisely, just as consumers in Europe, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Russia and China already do.
As as a health evangelist, I encourage everyone to visit the Just Label It website (www.justlabelit.org/
