FW: Signature needed: Fight Monsanto, label GMOs

What we eat determines how clearly we can think (among other factors, of course); however nutrition is a KEY factor.  “Garbage In=Garbage Out.”  Monsanto & its accomplices are motivated by $ greed—just like the tobacco cos were/are.  Monsanto wants to control the world’s food supply & patent seeds! – so that even farmers won’t be allowed to save their Own seeds!  They are the world’s leading manufacturer of Roundup, which is as deadly to the environment as DDT—shown to cause birth defects & finally outlawed.  Monsanto is considered the #1 “Most Evil Company” in the world, according to ethical standards for quality of human life. 

 

Considering the film, “Years of Living Dangerously”—a just-released documentary by Lesley Stahl about global warming in Greenland, corporate greed & massive denial by Christian fundamentalist religions, shown at the Orlando Humanist Assn. monthly mtg. in May, the corporate greed & non-ethics by Monsanto & its cohorts is “hand in glove” with the Big Oil cos. & the Koch-like billionaires who are running Congress.

 

The People need to Stand Up & Say “NO!” – Not on MY Watch!

Tell the FDA: Include GMOs on Nutrition Facts labels

The petition to the FDA reads:
Add specific information about genetically modified organism (GMO) content to Food Nutrition Facts labels and one of the two following blanket statements, as applicable: "Contains one or more GMOs" OR "Does not contain any GMOs."

Dear Norma,

No GMO Corn — click here to take action.

In an effort initiated by Michelle Obama, the Food and Drug Administration is updating the look and content of the Nutrition Facts labels on the food we buy, but there's one critical and glaring omission: the new plan doesn't include labeling of genetically modified food.

It's no surprise. The Grocery Manufacturers Association, Monsanto, and others are spending a lot of money to prevent labeling of GMOs. Some members of Congress, whose campaigns are backed by the Koch brothers, are even working to ban mandatory labeling of GMOs at the federal level.

But now we have a real shot at convincing the FDA to include GMOs as part of this food labeling update.

Sign the petition: Tell the FDA to include GMOs on Nutrition Facts labels.

Consumers have a right to know what's in their food. In fact, more than 90% of Americans support mandatory labeling of GMOs, but the United States is one of the only industrialized countries in the world without mandatory GMO labeling laws. Some states like Vermont have already passed laws requiring GMO labeling, but with this FDA action, all consumers in every state would know whether or not their food contained GMO ingredients.

The FDA has extended the comment collection period to August 1, so this is our chance to convince the federal government that nutrition labels must include GMO information.

Tell the FDA to include GMOs on Nutrition Facts labels. Click the link below to sign the petition:
