Call or send a letter to your senators and representatives for your district and tell them to promote and support bills calling for mandatory labeling and safety testing of GE foods. Because they have not been tested, all GE food should be taken off the market until proven safe.
Eat organic and local food. Organic food is GMO free and is better for us, the farmer who grows it, and the environment. Support your local farmer’s market, CSA (community supported agriculture), or grow your own. There is nothing better then freshly picked organic food.
Educate yourself. Watch “The Future of Food”, “Fresh” & “Genetic Roulette” and then vote with your fork. If we buy and demand organic, non-genetically modified, sustainable food big Ag will come around.

Encourage your local school board to serve school lunches which use organic ingredients and to boycott any food that contains GMO ingredients.
Call or Fax the ‘Frankenfood Fifteen.’ Tell them to remove GMO ingredients, including rBGH, from their brand products or you won’t buy them anymore.
