Petition Closed

GMOs have been genetically engineered in a lab to be either herbicide resistant, pesticide producing, or both. The FDA does not require testing of GMOs and no safety studies have been conducted on humans, animals, or the environment. There are currently five widespread GM Food Crops on the market: (1) Soy; (2) Corn; (3) Canola; (4) Cotton; and (5) Sugar Beets. In America today at least 80% of all processed foods contain one or more GMO ingredient. We are completely unaware of this fact because there are NO laws requiring manufacturers to label a food as a GMO. Be aware that GMO ingredients have aliases and they may be difficult to spot. Some hidden GMO ingredients include; aspartame, baking soda, caramel color, corn flour, corn sugar, corn syrup, dextrose, fructose, protein, lecithin, malt, maltodextrin, sorbitol, sugar, soy sauce, soy lecithin, vitamin E, vitamin B12, and xanthum gum. We deserve the right to know what is in our food, a right that the people in 50 other countries including all of Europe, Japan, China, Brazil, and New Zealand already enjoy.
