In the late 1980s and early 1990s guidance on assessing the safety of genetically engineered plants and food emerged from organizations including the FAO and WHO.

Small scale experimental plantings of genetically modified (GM) plants began in Canada and the U.S. in the late 1980s. The first approvals for large scale, commercial cultivation came in the mid 1990s.

Since that time, adoption of GM plants by farmers has increased annually.

We are requesting that the United States place labels on all GE and GMO food products.

The EU has already adopted this policy.

It is time for the Unites States to hold the producers of these products responsible.

WE ARE REQUESTING THAT LABELS BE PLACED ON ALL GE AND GMO PRODUCTS TO INFORM CONSUMERS OF THEIR EXISTENCE.

It is our civil right to know the contents of these products, including whether or not it is Genetically Engineered.

The EU has already adopted this policy.

It is time for the Unites States to hold the producers of these products responsible.

Thank you for listening,
