If you could help get genetically engineered food labeled by doing one simple thing per day for only 20 weeks - would you do it?
Take the pledge!
We have only 20 short weeks until the November election. It's enough time to win at the ballot box if you and your friends take the pledge to do 1 Thing Per Day.
I recently read an article on the Mercola.com website that said, " it's estimated that the opposition [to the Label GMOs act] will spend an estimated $60 - $100 million to convince voters that genetically engineered foods are perfectly safe. They'll try to scare voters into believing that labeling food will be more expensive, that it will sparks hundreds of lawsuits against farmers and small businesses and that it will contribute to world hunger". http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/06/14/organizations-on-anti-gmo-labeling.aspx We need to remember a simple fact - if GMOs are so safe, what's the problem with labeling? In addition, it can be brought up that Monstanto has been responsible for lawsuits against farmers whose crops were unknowingly contaminated by GMOs. Citizens of starving countries are burning GMO food instead of eating it. People want and deserve the right to make a choice about what they are going to feed their families. When faced with opposition, we need to stay strong and stick to the basics. Our health and our future is in jeapordy.
