Stand up to stop GMO’s.
Here’s an important issue for all of us.
Our own Congress is threatening to sign a bill that will allow big companies, like Monsanto, NOT have to tell us what food has GMO’s in it.
Read this excerpt here:
• It blocks states from labeling foods that contain genetically modified organisms, or GMOs
• It allows food companies to describe products that contain GMO ingredients as “natural”
• It guarantees that the FDA will never conduct independent, pre-market safety testing on GMO food.
And also from one of our congressman:
US Congressman John Conyers (D-Michigan) put it best:
“H.R. 1599 is an unprecedented corporate power grab, which would not only stop the Food and Drug Administration and states from labeling GMOs but also block many state and local efforts to protect farmers and the public from threats including pesticide drift.
“People deserve to know what’s in their food. Sadly — due to a lack of news coverage about H.R. 1599 — most Americans have been denied basic information about the debate in Congress.
“It’s time for our nation’s major news organizations to shine light on sweeping changes to our food system.”
Laissez Faire is asking us to fill out a petition to send to the Senate to stop them from signing this bill. If you feel strongly about this issue, then go here and sign it to stop what is going on under the radar.
Please share and send to anyone who wants to be able to know what is in their food.
