URGENT! Tell the USDA & FDA that GMO foods MUST be labeled! Click here to sign. http://bit.ly/9xa2l0 @FRESHthemovie. I just signed a petition to stop the United States from moving forward with a policy that would allow genetically modified foods to go unlabled.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have adopted a pro-corporate position that laughably claims labeling GM/GE foods creates the "false" impression that "that the labeled food is in some way different from other foods.”
And next week, at the United Nations meeting in Canada, they will tell the world to adopt the same position, preventing other countries from rightly labeling GMOs as different from fresh, natural food. The implications of this position could further undermine organic food standards all over the world.
We know that GMO food created by the likes of Monsanto is not only "different" but unhealthy and unsustainable. Can you join me in telling the USDA and FDA to wake up and drop this ridiculous position?
Click here to tell the USDA and FDA: the world should be free to label GMO foods as such.
Unless we act now, the United States will go to this meeting telling the world that GMO foods are not different and should not be labeled.
Genetically modified foods are, by definition, genetically different. By altering nature's design in order to withstand barrages of chemicals and other poisons, humans are without question creating a new, different kind of food.
The world's food is at stake. Beyond labeling GMOs, the entire "organic" label is at risk of being undermined. Consumers across the world should know what kind of food they're buying: natural or unnatural.
