FDA: Require Genetically Modified Foods To Be Labeled

    1. Marcie Cobbaert
    2. Petition by

      Marcie Cobbaert

      Wentzville, United States Minor Outlying Islands

 

Every citizen has a right to know what is in the food they are eating in order to make their own decision about what is best for their health. Survey after survey with sweeping results has proven that Americans want GM foods to be labeled.

If GM foods are so healthy, why not label them?

Please sign this petition to tell the FDA that we want truth and choice when it comes to what we eat. The FDA and USDA are there to protect and serve the people. However, what we have seen are big pharma and companies like Monsanto swaying the decision making, truly a travesty.     

What can you do to help the cause? 

Sign this petition! 

Spend your hard earned money on organic food only.  Buying lowers the cost, supply & demand!

Buy from local farmers before they disappear completely.

To find a local farmer near you, please visit this link and type in your zip code. http://www.localharvest.org/organic-farms/

Grown your own organic garden or start a community garden.

"Our soil must be normal, no artificial fertlizers should be used, no poisons, no sprays which go into the soil and poison it.  Whatever grows on a poisoned soil carries poison, too.  And that is our food, our fruit and vegetables. I am convinced that the soil is our external metabolism. It is not really far removed from our bodies. We depend on it." Dr. Max Gerson

    3. Where are the 96%?

      Marcie Cobbaert
      Petition Organizer

      The numbers are in and Americans want GMO foods to be labeled and yet I only have 629 signatures. More and more GMO mistakes, human rights issues and country bans are popping up every day. The momentum is building and this is GREAT! We as citizens need to speak up on this issue. GMO is not only questionable for human consumption, it's destroying our farmland leaving us with acres upon acres of desert, used and abused land, 160 million plus acres in total.

      Just today, Hungary kicked Monsanto out when the discovered GMO corn, go Hungary. They understand the devastating effects of GMO, lets tell our Gov we want the same action.

      Thank You,

      It gives me great pleasure to see these companies being called out for the damage they are doing. I hope that eventually GMO crops are completely banned, but in the meantime lets work together toward at least getting our Gov agencies to admit they deserve a label.

      Very interesting article linked below.

    5. Small Victory Against GMO's & Monsanto

      Petition Organizer

      Being from Missouri, home of Monsanto Headquarters, this was quite pleasing news. I hope to see more of this happening across the country. Even though this is a small victory, it is still a victory and encourages me not to give up.

      Lets get some more signatures! Thank you to all that have signed, you're doing your part.

      Don't forget, buy organic!

    7. No Independent Testing Allowed. How irresponsible and unethical!

      Marcie Cobbaert
      Petition Organizer

      Without independent testing on the GMO seeds, we have no idea what negative effects these crops pose to our bodies or the environment. By not allowing independent testing, it seems these corporations have something to hide as does our Gov. When things do go wrong, it's difficult to hold the guilty party responsible if there is no proof. How convenient for companies like Monsanto.

      We as a nation need to get behind this issue. Our food is important. Please help me gather signatures. There are 300 million of us, let your voices be heard in Washington! We can not roll over and let this issue go, it's way too important. The next time you are grocery shopping, notice the huge gap in available organic produce as compared to genetically modified.

      It is our right as Americans to know what we are eating. Personally, I don't want to eat any GM foods because no long term tests have been run to even prove these are safe for consumption.

      We have the right to know exactly what is in our food. If Monsanto won't tell us that our corn has pesticides built into it, then it's time to boycott Monsanto products. But before we go that far, let's give them the chance to do the right thing.
