Ask your representative to join Peter DeFazio and the other 66 co-sponsors and support the DeFazio bill, HR 1699 the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act, instead and provide labeling of GMO foods that maintain the threshold limits and other stipulations that the individual states have been lobbying for.
Defeat Pompeo’s “Dark Act” HR 4432. Support HR 1699, introduced by Peter DeFazio and NOT the misleading HR 4432.
Not one study has proven that GMOs are safe for humans to consume. The so called “safety”studies that Pompeo and friends allude to actually show otherwise and raise some serious questions. As the Health Subcommittee of the United States here’s some facts to consider: Genetically engineered crops, glyphosate and the deterioration of health in the United States of America
Tell your representative we need toxicology studies and allergen studies the US is lax on requiring. Even the EU requires toxicology studies but even theirs have not been completed on combined stacked traits of these GMO crops. The government has not required studies on toxicity of the glyphosate and all the other chemicals used in the herbicide Round Up that most of the GMO crops are.
Independent studies show these “inert ingredients” aren’t inert at all and are 1,000 times more toxic than RoundUp alone. How does this toxic combination affect our health when consumed in almost every processed food? Did you hear that glyphosates were found to bio-accumulate in human tissues, even in mother’s breast milk? Yes, the biotech companies mis-marketed their product to you when they told you it wouldn’t do that. I’m sure you can understand the implications of health and safety regarding bio-accumulating toxins.
When the decision was made to release GMOS to the public in 1992 without mandatory testing or labeling, it was the senior scientists at the FDA who objected to this. They were overridden by their non-scientist superiors. In part for this reason there is no mandated way to report problems with GMOs to the FDA as there is with drugs.
