We all have a right to know what’s in the food we eat and feed our children. This includes whether or not the food is genetically engineered. We need to be able to make informed choices and have the freedom to choose which foods we consume. If we don’t eat organic food, we may be eating genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) without knowing it. GMO’s include plants and animals whose DNA has been altered by genes from other animals, viruses, bacteria, herbicides and pesticides. Many foods contain these altered genes but they are not labeled. The majority of countries in the world require labels on GMO foods, but in the U.S. no labels are required. Consumers have tried for years to get their representatives to pass laws requiring labeling without success. Now the people of California have passed a historic citizens’ initiative that may finally give us the freedom to know what is in the foods we eat. Join me as I talk with Stacy Malkan, Media Director for the California Right to Know Campaign. Discover what may be lurking in your food, the health consequences for you and your family, why we don’t have labeling laws for GMO’s and how the California Right to Know initiative is on track to restore food freedom for all Americans.
