Millions of acres of genetically engineered (GMO) crops have been planted in the United States.
Nearly two-thirds of the products on our supermarket shelves contain genetically engineered ingredients.
Consumer polls show that 80-95% of Americans want GMO foods to be labeled – mainly so that we can avoid buying them!
The British Medical Association has called for a global moratorium and/or ban on GMO foods and the New England Journal of Medicine warned that the allergenic potential of GMO’s is uncertain, unpredictable and untestable.
Scientists warn that GMO foods may set off allergies, increase cancer risks, produce antibiotic-resistant pathogens, damage our food quality and produce dangerous toxins in our environment.
Genetic engineering may trigger allergies. Without labeling we won’t know if we are eating food that contain genes from other foods which we’re allergic.
Despite growing public and scientific concern over the safety of milk and dairy products from cows treated with recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), and many concerns about our health and environment from GMO corn, soy, canola, cotton and sugar beet, the US government refuses to require safety testing or labeling of GMO foods. As a result, many other nations including Europe and Japan, are refusing to buy many US food exports.
Don’t experiment with your baby!
