RE: Petition the FDA to label GMO foods
**See links below, as well as their Facebook page.**

The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act is Prop 37 on the Nov ballot. Prop 37 would simply require food sold in retail outlets such as grocery stores in California to be labeled if it is produced with genetic engineering.

Mission
To win the right to know what's in our food! Vote yes on Nov. 6 for the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act of 2012

Description
We Currently Eat Genetically Engineered Food, But We Don't Know It

A genetically engineered (GE) food is a plant or meat product that has had its DNA artificially altered by genes from other plants, animals, viruses, or bacteria, in order to produce foreign compounds in that food. This type of genetic alteration is not found in nature. Today, the majority of corn and soy grown in the U.S. is genetically engineered to produce pesticide and/or withstand high doses of weed killer. This corn and soy is found in countless processed foods such as cereals, baby foods, breads, chips, and many other products. FDA is currently considering approving a GE salmon that has been altered to promote faster growth. Some of our most important staple food crops are being fundamentally altered, but without proper labeling, we have no way of knowing which ones.

The Risk of Genetically Engineered Foods

Unlike the strict safety evaluations required for the approval of new drugs, the safety of genetically engineered foods for human consumption is not adequately tested. Studies show that genetically engineering food can create new, unintended toxicants and increase allergens, and other health problems. Experts around the world agree that by labeling genetically engineered food, we can help identify any adverse health reactions that these foods may cause.

Much of the World Already Requires Labeling for Genetically Engineered Foods

50 countries including the European Union, Japan and China already label genetically engineered foods. California should be the leader on this important issue here in the United States.

A Simple Proposition for California in 2012

The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act is simple: The initiative would require food sold in retail outlets such as grocery stores (not including restaurants) to be labeled if it is produced with genetic engineering. In addition to this disclosure, genetically engineered foods are prohibited from being advertised as 'natural.'

RE: Petition the FDA to label GMO foods
We should all also email the FDA and ask them how they can say that GM foods are not "meaningfully different" from regular foods - patents are granted for GM foods while it is not possible to patent regular food. They can't have it both ways.

I had the hardest time finding GMO free corn meal today...Then I realized how pointless it was when I saw how many things I bought had that evil high fructose corn syrup.



I know exactly how you feel. My grocery shoppong these days has me at the farmer market or the produce area of grocery stores. When I buy produce, I look for the EVIL five digit code starting with an "8" (8 means GMO poison inside).

I buy almost zero processed foods because these people are using the cheapest materials available and/or substitute sugars. They are killing us.

Petition........... LoL Good luck on that, God knows they listen to the people.

You are poisoned for a reason, not for cash. It isn't greed that allows these toxins in to your food supply.

If you want to break free, it will take a lot more than a crap load of signatures, asking them to tell you what's in the food you buy. Asking... LMAO Please, please, please... Go ahead and beg them, they will give you no mercy.

I just started this petition a few minutes ago and am asking you all to research GMOs (I'm sure most of you here already have), sign and share

>> Mod Edit <<
SQ has already a thread about this since a week:
It's the petition for California which would be a precedence if it passes:
http://www.cornucopia.org/prop37-petition/
http://lunaticoutpost.com/Topic-Please-S...inst-GMO-s

Why? So they can delete them again?

RE: Petition the FDA to label GMO foods
GMO wil be taken care of, but they already did something else to make sure everyone dies. In the obamacare law, it says if you are not worth saving they will just send you to hospice to die. SO they already fixed it. You are still screwed.
