Tell FDA and Obama No More Tricks: Label GE Foods!
The Center for Food Safety recently filed a formal legal petition with FDA demanding that the agency require the labeling of genetically engineered foods. Now, we are spearheading a drive with over 350 other organizations and businesses in the Just Label It! Campaign, to direct one million comments to the FDA in support of our petition.
Genetically engineered foods are required to be labeled in the 15 European Union nations, Russia, Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand, and many other countries around the world. A recent poll released by ABC News found that 93 percent of the American public wants the federal government to require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. As ABC News stated, "Such near-unanimity in public opinion is rare." Yet the United States is one of the only countries in the world that doesn’t require labeling of GE food!
In the U.S., we pride ourselves on having choices and making informed decisions. Under current FDA regulations, we don’t have that choice when it comes to GE ingredients in the foods we purchase and feed our families.
Americans have been asking Congress to pass a labeling law for more than 10 years, to no avail. It’s time to take the fight back to FDA-bigger and louder than ever before. Tell FDA and President Obama to label genetically engineered foods!

With the holiday season upon us, what I’d like to stress is this:
It’s not so much what you eat and do between November and January 1st that matters as much as what you do between January and November. We create our daily habits and then those habits create our health or lack of health.
Though no one can go back and make a new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
