Goal: 15,000 Progress: 10,319
Sponsored by: The Hunger Site

Everyone has a right to know about the food they eat and feed their families, but under current FDA regulations, U.S. citizens are denied that right when it comes to genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The number and variety of GMO foods reaching grocery shelves is accelerating without proper regulation or human health testing, and most disconcertingly, without comprehensive labeling. The safety of GMOs for human consumption has not been adequately examined. Studies by the National Academy of Sciences have shown that genetically engineered plants have real potential to introduce new allergens and toxins into our food supply.

Sixty-four other countries have labeling requirements in place to enable consumers to make informed, healthy decisions about their food selection, including fifteen European countries, Russia, Japan, China, Australia, and New Zealand.

Tell the FDA it’s time for the United States to join the rest of the modern world and mandate clear labeling of all foods containing GMOs.

Dear Dr. Margaret Ann Hamburg:

As the current commissioner of the Federal Food and Drug Administration, you are in a unique position to make healthy history. The failure of the U.S. to join the rest of the world in labeling GMOs is shameful and ultimately unjust.

There have been no complete epidemiological studies on the possible impact of GMOs, but there is research that suggests unsettling developments, such as insecticides for genetically modified corn showing up in human bloodstreams. There is also reason to believe that GMOs have had a role in the increase in childhood allergies.

As evidence mounts about the dangers of genetically modified foods, consumer outrage has grown proportionately. Until we know without a doubt that GE crops are safe to eat, we should have a choice about whether we want to eat them. Please pass regulations to clearly label all foods containing GMOs.

Aug 19, 2014 Gregg Challman I wish to know what I eat.even in China they know about gmo foods.
Aug 19, 2014 (Name not displayed) We have a right to know what is going into our foods. How do we know these GMOs won't cause Cancer, or something worse? I have allergies and need to watch what I eat, and can't do that if I don't know what is in my food.
Aug 19, 2014 Mary Ainsworth GMO's should be listed on the label of ALL foods....make it happen so we can choose what to eat.

Aug 11, 2014 A J Richardson I want to know when I buy food that it isn't modified by anyone especially Monsanto!
Aug 11, 2014 Mark Caponigro I myself agree with scientific commenters such as Neil deGrasse Tyson, who point to how tests have shown these foods to be safe for consumers. Nevertheless, as consumers, we have a right to have GMO content in foods clearly labeled.
Aug 11, 2014 Susan Howell We deserve to know exactly what were are putting in our bodies and be able to decide if we want to purchase GMO laden foods and products.
