Take action to support 'Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act'

(NaturalNews) Every year for at least the last decade, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Oh.) has stood up for health freedom by introducing the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act before the U.S. Congress, only to witness it later die in committee. And once again, Rep. Kucinich has introduced the bill in the current congressional session, this time as H.R. 3553, with 21 co-sponsors thus far -- and your help is needed to finally get this legislation acknowledged and passed into law.

More Americans than ever are waking up to the presence of genetically-modified organisms (GMO) in the foods they eat, which means momentum is strong to pass legislation at the national level requiring their proper labeling. After all, more than 90 percent of individuals polled in numerous surveys have indicated that labeling GMOs is essential in a free society (http://www.naturalnews.com/031569_GMO_GMOs_food.html).

But as it stands, the federal government is stonewalling all efforts, both public and private, to implement food transparency. It also continues to ignore all independent science on the matter, which shows conclusively that GMOs are not the same as natural foods, and that they are responsible for causing a host of illnesses in humans, and colossal environmental damage (http://www.naturalnews.com/GMO.html).

"Gen-M, 'Generation Monsanto,' the first generation of humans force-fed genetically modified foods, hasn't reached reproductive age yet (they were born in the late 1990s)," says a new Organic Consumers Association (OCA) Action Alert. "But, if a critical mass of animal feeding studies are any indication, the millennial generation, reared on Food Inc.'s unlabeled 'Frankenfoods' can look forward to a long-term epidemic of cancer, food allergies, sterility, learning disabilities, and birth defects."

You can access this important Action Alert where you can contact your Congressmen about GMO labeling here:

In California (http://www.naturalnews.com), Washington (http://www.naturalnews.com), and about a dozen other states there are currently efforts underway to pass GMO labeling laws statewide, which is a great start. But the federal government, controlled largely by pharmaceutical and biotechnology interests, refuses to require mandatory labeling, let alone require proper safety testing for GMOs before approving them.

But the issue is not going away anytime soon, and eventually a critical mass of awareness about GMOs and the immense damage they are causing to humans and the environment will spur a political and agricultural revolution. So our elected officials had better listen up now and take action before the people decide to take action for them.

Be sure to ask your representatives to cosponsor H.R. 3553:
