WELCOME TO OUR NEW BLOG Now, take a moment, and consider where you were in 1992 . . .when our food was silently and secretly contaminated with GMO’s . . without our knowledge . . and without our approval. We can now END the contamination of our food, by telling our representatives to write President Obama, and request an Executive Order to the Food and Drug Administration to label genetically engineered food. What we do now WILL make a difference – so we must act now. http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/write-or-call http://www.contactingthecongress.org
When labeling of genetically engineered food is required in the United States – and it can be soon – our food will NOT be produced from ingredients that are made from genetically engineered corn, soy, canola, and sugar beets. Farmers will stop growing genetically engineered crops, because nobody wants to eat them. Farmers will grow conventional crops, and supply food manufacturers with ingredients that are not genetically engineered. The contamination of our food will be over.
I am a mother of six children and twelve grandchildren. I go to Washington D.C. to lobby Congress and the President to require labeling of genetically engineered food; so my children, and their children’s kids, will have healthy food. I have been working full-time for the past seven years to require labeling of genetically engineered food.
Do you realize that infant formula is genetically engineered? Do you know that genetically engineered ingredients are in almost all the processed food we eat? Do you realize that the daily diet of almost everyone in this country has been genetically engineered?
Our right to know is our responsibility. We must learn how to speak up and communicate with our representatives. We must tell the President and First Lady how we feel about genetically engineered food. They are either considering our interests they’re listening to the ‘special’ interests of Big Ag and Big Food. Our representatives need to hear from us!
