GMO Free USA

GMO Free USA

1998: The year Biotech launched its war on science. Arpad Pusztai, an impeccably qualified scientist & a previous supporter of GMOs, received a grant to develop standard animal feeding trial testing methods to assess possible toxicological effects arising from the GE plant transformation process. The rats fed the GE potatoes in his feeding study developed organ damage, immune defects and other health problems. He found it was the actual process of genetic engineering that was the problem. Dr. Pusztai's response to the study finding was to say... "If I had the choice, I would certainly not eat it. I find it's very unfair to use our fellow citizens as guinea pigs." Dr. Pusztai was treated like a hero in the media...for one day. The very next day after his TV interview, he was fired from his position at his research institute, humiliated, discredited, and legally silenced. Biotech's anti-science campaign continues to this day. Feel like eating one of those Simplot GMO non-bruising potatoes that the USDA just approved?

STOP THE DARK ACT: TELL YOUR SENATOR YOU WANT MANDATORY GMO LABELING. Find your Senator here: https://salsa4.salsalabs.com/o/51225/getLocal.jsp

Call & write to your Senator and tell them to reject the "Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015" - better known as the DARK Act (Deny Americans the Right to Know). This bill doesn't promote safety or accuracy - just the opposite. It will outlaw mandatory GMO labeling. Tell them to vote YES on S.511 (the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act). And point your Senator to this article: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp1505660

EXCERPT:
"...the application of biotechnology to agriculture has been rapid and aggressive. The vast majority of the corn and soybeans grown in the United States are now genetically engineered. Foods produced from GM crops have become ubiquitous. And unlike regulatory bodies in 64 other countries, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require labeling of GM foods.

Two recent developments are dramatically changing the GMO landscape. First, there have been sharp increases in the amounts and numbers of chemical herbicides applied to GM crops, and still further increases - the largest in a generation - are scheduled to occur in the next few years. Second, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified glyphosate, the herbicide most widely used on GM crops, as a “probable human carcinogen” and classified a second herbicide, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), as a “possible human carcinogen.

...we believe the time has come to revisit the United States' reluctance to label GM foods. Labeling will deliver multiple benefits. It is essential for tracking emergence of novel food allergies and assessing effects of chemical herbicides applied to GM crops. It would respect the wishes of a growing number of consumers who insist they have a right to know what foods they are buying and how they were produced. And the argument that there is nothing new about genetic rearrangement misses the point that GM crops are now the agricultural products most heavily treated with herbicides and that two of these herbicides may pose risks of cancer. We hope, in light of this new information, that the FDA will reconsider labeling of GM foods and couple it with adequately funded, long-term postmarketing surveillance." - Philip J. Landrigan, M.D., and Charles Benbrook, Ph.D.
