"One argument I hear repeatedly is that nobody has been sick or died after a meal (or a trillion meals since 1996) of GM food. Nobody gets ill from smoking a pack of cigarette either. But it sure adds up, and we did not know that in the 1950s before we started our wave of epidemics of cancer. Except this time it is not about a bit of smoke, it’s the whole food system that is of concern. The corporate interest must be subordinated to the public interest, and the policy of substantial equivalence must be scrapped as it is clearly untrue."
Tell the FDA to Label Genetically Engineered Food
GE foods are labeled in 64 countries including the entire European Union. The U.S. is now one of the only developed countries in the world that doesn’t require labeling. Join 1.4 million people in signing the petition telling the FDA that it’s time to label GE foods in the USA.
