Why would anyone want to hide the truth of what is in our food?
This September the House Energy and Commerce Committee will likely be holding a hearing on the anti-GE labeling bill, H.R. 4432. Also known as the Pompeo Bill, this proposed legislation would prevent Ohio and other states from establishing GE labeling, prevent the FDA from ever requiring GE labeling, and allow GE food to be labeled as natural.
Food designed in a laboratory is about as far from natural as you can get!
This is a real opportunity to voice your support for your right to know what is in the food you eat and feed your family. The Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act (H.R. 1699) would require any GE food item with at least 1 GE ingredient to have a GE label. It would also give all parties an opportunity to be heard. This is THE Federal GE food labeling bill to support.
The next two weeks is a critical time to contact your representatives and let them know that this isssue is important to you. GE food technology was introduced with a promise: To feed the world and decrease the use of harmful chemicals. Studies are now showing that promise was a hollow one.
