U.S. FDA and the Governor of Florida: List and label GMO's on food sold in Florida

    1. Ash Spivey
    2. Petition by

      Ash Spivey

      South Daytona, FL

The research of GMO crops' effects on humans over time is not conclusive enough for our health and well-being. Money is being spent on research of GMO's that we as a country cannot afford to do. This money could be spent on growing food without pesticides and genetic modification to feed our nation.

I believe it should be mandatory in Florida that all genetically modified organisms be labeled as such. All products containing ingredients grown using GMO crops should also require labelling.

Signing this petition will urge the Food and Drug Administration and our state elected officials to label all food items sold in stores in Florida. This is an issue that affects 100% of Americans that are not on a complete Organic diet.
If you believe all foods containing GMO's should be labeled, sign this petition.

Educate yourself http://www.saynotogmos.org/

Florida is just the start. California is taking strong initiative towards this cause in their state. We the people should be urging their governors to stop their states from using GMO's and at the very least, label all foods containing them.

If you live in Florida, you can email the governor here http://www.flgov.com/contact-gov-scott/email-the-governor/ If you dont mind that your email address be displayed publicly. Every time this petition gets signed, an email will automatically get sent to the FDA.

We are the citizens, we can help steer America in the right direction by not overlooking issues that are affecting us all. Make Florida label and we can quite possibly get rid of GMO funding all together over time.

Thank you for reading.

      GMO labeling is my #1 cause. Let's just inundate all petitions, government, and local offices. I have a similar petition...please sign and please sign every other one until this is changed. The people are stronger than this corporation and we need to do all we can to stop them.

      Labeling first and then work on what they are doing to the environment.
