Clean Living Tuesday: GMO Right to Know March

July 26, 2011

As the citizens of this country become more aware that our food supply is being taken over by GMO foods; the movement to get them labeled is growing every day. Regardless of your GMO philosophy, those of us who want to avoid them have a right to know if they are in our food.

The biggest mobilization of the campaign to get GMOs labeled will take place October 1-16, 2011. The Right 2 Know March will walk from New York City to Washington, DC, and there will be many presentations and speakers in cities along the way.

If it's important for you to know just what's in your food, then now is the time to get involved!

The reasons for there not being labels on gmo foods, and by-products, is simply because of the swinging door between agricultural biotech companies like Monsanto and the U.S. government. The world-wide deregulation of gmo labeling requirements would also open up free trade of these genetically engineered and modified foods particularly to the European countries which currently do not even allow rBGH in their milk.

Sadly, most of the EU now does us GMO ingredients. Ireland just banned them outright, and Hungary destroyed a bunch of GM corn. Still, these ingredients are labeled in other countries. By law they have to tell you how much fat, protein, and carbs, etc. This is no different, some of us don;t believe that we should ever ingest these ingredients, and now they are appearing even in organic foods. Personally, I don't eat out of too many boxes, but still we have a right to know.
