Many may ask, what is a GMO, and why should we be concerned? A GMO is a “genetically modified organism”, often called genetically engineered (GE). The correct scientific term is “transgenics.” This is a process whereby the genes of one species are inserted into another species. The main reason we want them labeled is that there is enough independent data to suggest possible health risks. Many don’t want to eat GMO’s but can’t know which foods they are in, if they aren’t labeled. It’s a basic consumer right to know what we are buying and putting in our children’s mouths.
93% of Americans want the FDA to label genetically engineered foods. Watch the new video from Food, Inc. Filmmaker Robert Kenner to hear why we have the right to know what’s in our food.
