Food tyranny to become federal policy as DARK Act threatens to censor all GMO labeling nationwide ... Take action!


DARK Act
(NaturalNews) While many health-conscious Americans are in favor of having their foods labeled so they know whether or not they're eating genetically-modified items, there are people determined to keep citizens in the dark about what they ingest. Appropriately referred to as the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act, it mainly involves members of the government and the folks at Monsanto (surprise, surprise) who don't think food should carry such labeling.

For example, if Senator Pat Roberts, Chair of the Agriculture Committee, gets his way, a new bill would squash the GMO labeling strides that Vermont has made, while preventing additional states from involvement in mandatory GMO labeling laws.

The bill would also make voluntary labeling fall under the jurisdiction of the USDA – a frightening thought considering that the agency would likely be perfectly fine labeling foods as Non-GMO even if they've been created with the controversial genetic engineering technique known as gene editing. Such people – including Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow – are of the mind set that these labeling laws are unnecessary because GM foods are, in their opinion, safe.

Unfortunately, the bill is making frightening strides, as it's recently been given the green light by the Senate Agriculture Committee in a 14 to 6 vote. This means that the bill is inching its way closer to becoming a reality; because of this recent decision, the bill is on its way to the Senate where it will receive a full vote.

But you can help prevent such an atrocity from taking place.

How you can take action to prevent the DARK Act from happening ... Sign the petition now

The serious implications that this bill has for your health and freedom is precisely why you should take action today. Sign the "Stop the Dark Act in the Senate" petition now to make your thoughts known, and to urge people to value better health over what's-in-it-for-me politics. Their ludicrous attempts at banning GMO labeling must stop.

Upon clicking the "Read the petition link" on the petition page, you'll read words that speak truth and resonate among the health-conscious. There, it states that, "Americans want 4 simple words: Produced with genetic engineering." It goes on to say, "It is unconscionable that you would support a bill to take away States' Rights to label GMOs and preempt Connecticut, Maine and Vermont's mandatory GMO labeling laws. It's a slap in the face of Americans' who have a right to know if our food has been genetically engineered. I am urging you to do the right thing. Support states' rights and the right of every American to have simple, on package access to the information we need to make informed choices about the food we feed our families."

If you're in agreement with these words, take action today by signing the petition. Undo what Senator Roberts set out to do, and what seems to be moving in a very dangerous direction. Every single signature matters, so don't think yours won't make a difference.

The details of the bill Roberts hopes to see rise through the system and become fully passed, says, "No State or a political subdivision of a State may directly or indirectly establish under any authority or continue in effect as to any food or seed in interstate commerce any requirement relating to the labeling of whether a food (including food served in a restaurant or similar establishment) or seed is genetically engineered (which shall include such other similar terms as determined by the Secretary of Agriculture) or was developed or produced using genetic engineering, including any requirement for claims that a food or seed is or contains an ingredient that was developed or produced using genetic engineering."

If GMOs are so safe, why is the government running scared when it comes to food labeling?

That's a long-winded way of saying that your right to know what you're eating is about to be violated – should this bill go through. It's hard to imagine, but there are actually people out there who want you to continue eating horrible, Frankenfoods; they're blatantly saying they want to keep GMO horrors out of your sight. But if they're as safe as they suggest, why do they run scared when the topic of GMO labeling arises?

"Congress must pass a national food labeling solution that offers farmers, families and food producers the certainty and access to the affordable and sustainable food supply they deserve," says Pamela Bailey, head of the Grocery Manufacturers Association.

Others are in agreement with her thoughts, including Scott Faber, the head of the national Just Label It Campaign. Of the latest attempt by Roberts, Farber says that it's "outrageous" for him to try to prevent the public from knowing what they're ingesting.
