It is very difficult to find news information about H.R.1599 – Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015. The big news channels ignore any news about it, even on the internet you have to search for information.
The bill was passed at the House on July 23rd, 2015 with 275 YES votes (primarily Republicans) and 150 NO votes (primarily Democrats). Here is a link to the results and which of the members of the house from each state sold us out: http://politics.nytimes.com/congress/votes/114/house/1/462
We were sold out again to Monsanto. There are not many chances anymore to stop that bill from becoming reality.
Denying us the right to know what is in our food is ridiculous. If GMO’s are so good for us, why not be proud and put them on the label? Monsanto knows, if they put: ‘contains GMO’ – people won’t buy the product. That’s why.
We need to stick together and say NO, loud and clear.
Join me and 1.4 million Americans, who are demanding to know what is in their food. Click here to tell the FDA to Label GMO’s.
Even being on a paleo and/or gluten free lifestyle, I still do not believe in GMO’s. Everybody deserves the right to know what they are eating. We selected our representatives in the government, and they are selling us out to Monsanto.
And there are more and more GMO foods coming to our table. Today I read an article that soon we will have GMO Salmon on our dinner table. I love salmon and had the best salmon in the world from a friend who lives in Alaska. Now even salmon will be engineered and put in our food supply. And with trying to keep us in the dark through preventing labeling of GMO foods, we won’t know, if our salmon is GMO food or not.
Please join me by going to http://gmosummit.org/ and signing that letter to the FDA.
