Tell the Senate: Support the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act

Whether you're a 100% organic shopper or a fast-food junkie, every single one of us should have the right to know whether the food we're eating has been genetically engineered. We call on the U.S. Senate to support the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act and pass it without delay.

Why is this important?

Whether it's corn on the cob, or big juicy tomatoes, or a pint of raspberries, summer is a great time to eat whatever's fresh off the farm -- nature's bounty at its finest.

But these days, it seems that food is a bit more complicated. Additives, preservatives, artificial flavorings -- not to mention, genetically-engineered food.

Maybe you want to eat 100% organic. Maybe you don't mind some artificial something-or-other.

But the one thing I think we can all agree on: You should have the right to know and choose what's in your food.

The big multinational food, chemical, and pesticide companies -- like Monsanto, DuPont, and Dow -- would rather keep you in the dark.

That doesn't work for me. That's why I support the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act.


Reasons for signing

  • I want to know what's in my food and how it got there. I also want to know by what means livestock are fed especially gmo seed including how chickens are raised and how they're fed especially gmo feed. It is very important as we have changed to organic including meat.
  • Gmos are an unknown substance. You should beware the consequences of eating food that has been genetically modified.
  • I want to know what I am eating!
