Tuesday Tips: Genetically Modified Foods, Americans Are In The Dark

Did you know that the United States of America is one of the only developed countries in the world to NOT label GMO's (genetically modified organisms) or GE (genetically engineered) foods? You can find  labels on foods in Europe to Japan, but Americans are still in the dark on this issue. ABC recently reported that 93% of Americans polled are in favor of labeling GMO's in our food, but the FDA continues to drag it's feet. Do you know how incredibly amazing it is to have the support of 93% of Americans surveyed, Wow! Could we actually call this a true bipartisan issue?!?

What is standing in our way? Corporations that buy elected officials which skirt the concerns of everyday Americans. I believe it's time for our voices to be heard.

Sign the Just Label It Petition now, let the FDA know we want action.

Do we really want to be the family represented in this video? I certainly DO NOT!
