Whole Foods To Require GMO Labeling

It warms my heart when I see big corporations stepping up to do the right thing.

Whole Foods Market just announced that every GMO product in their stores will need to be labeled by 2018.

Hooray! This is a step in the right direction and hopefully it will start off a domino effect that will ripple through our food system. Once you are labeling food for one outlet, it’s cheaper to have continuity in your labeling across all outlets.

Really, all this does is allow you, as a food consumer, to know if there are genetically modified ingredients inside this product. You will soon be able to choose for yourself if you want to eat those foods. And now, at least, you will have the information to make an informed decision.

Stop the Monsanto Rider

A so-called ‘Monsanto rider,’ quietly slipped into the multi-billion dollar FY 2013 Agricultural Appropriations bill, would require – not just allow, but require – the Secretary of Agriculture to grant a temporary permit for the planting or cultivation of a genetically engineered crop, even if a federal court has ordered the planting be halted until an Environmental Impact Statement is completed. All the farmer or the biotech producer has to do is ask.

A petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:

Stop the Monsanto Rider. Unless the senate or a citizen’s army of farmers and consumers can stop them, the House of Representatives is likely to ram this dangerous rider through any day now.

If you have been watching Monsanto’s moves to push their biologically unsafe, Genetically Modified foods onto the unsuspecting public with alarm, then you will want to sign this petition against the Monsanto rider!
