Friday Food Talk: Do You Know What You’re Buying At The Grocery Store?

Action Alert from Food Democracy Now!

Do you know what you’re buying at the grocery store? Chances are you don’t.

Today an estimated 80% of processed foods sold in the U.S. contain ingredients, known as genetically modified organisms (GMOs), that have been genetically engineered in high-tech laboratories and most Americans don’t have a clue!

For the past 20 years Americans have been denied their basic right to know what they’re eating because of a flawed regulatory system that has relied on corporate science without adequate peer-reviewed testing and scientific oversight.

It’s time to for that to change.

Click here to tell the FDA, it’s time to Label GMO foods!

Already more than 40 countries around the world require labeling of foods that contain GMOs. While Americans who live in the “land of the free” have no idea what’s in their food, citizens in the European Union, Japan, Russia and even China have the legal right to know.

Recent polling has shown that 93% of Americans support mandatory labeling of GMOs.

Already more than 900,000 citizens have signed the petition urging the FDA to finally require mandatory labeling of foods that contain ingredients that have been genetically engineered in high tech laboratories. Help us reach 1 million today!

Please join us in making sure that Americans have a right to know what’s in their food.

Tell the FDA it’s time to label GMOs!

After all, who doesn’t want to know where their food comes from?
