GMOs have already been shown to cause tumors and have a wide variety of other
detrimental health effects. What terrifies me most about GMOs is how they are infiltrating
non-GMO crop fields and altering the genetic makeup of the seeds to the crops we eat
forever. These genetically modified Franken crops are contaminating our food supply at
an alarming rate.
The dangers of GMOs is recognized throughout the world. Many countries have made
planting genetically modified crops of any kind in criminal activity. GMOs are banned in
27 countries. 50 countries have adopted laws requiring GMO products to be labeled.
Recently the government of Hungary intentionally burned over 1200 acres of genetically
modified crops to protect the rest of the country's food supply from this genetic pollution.
Report after report have demonstrated a wide variety of health hazards associated with
ingesting GMOs. Yet, America continues to do nothing. Well, actually that's not true. The
politicians in America are not doing nothing, some politicians are actually working to make
sure America remains ignorant of the truth of GMOs.
In fact, last week our politicians voted on an amendment (S.AMDT.965) that would allow
states to choose whether or not to require labeling of of products containing genetically
modified ingredients. Unfortunately 71 of our politicians voted against this amendment
preventing it from passing. Consumers have a right to know what they are eating,
however companies like Monsanto and other producers of GMOs say we don't. In fact,
they are spending millions of dollars to make sure we don't. These companies and these
politicians are saying we do not have a right to know if we are eating genetically modified
organisms or not.
North Carolina representatives Burr and Hagan both voted to against this
amendment. Please contact them and tell them that we deserve the right to
know what we are eating. Tell them we demand any product containing GMOs
are labeled so we can make educated and informed decisions on what we eat
and how we feed our families. Follow these links to contact your representatives
Tell them how you really feel or use the following template:
While the rest of the world is taking a stance against GMOs, America continues to
unknowingly ingest more and more. It is time to do something about it.
GMOs are Dangerous!

I am aware that you recently voted against amendment
(S.AMDT.965) that would allow states to choose
whether or not to require labeling of products
containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
I deserve the right to know what I am eating.
GMOs have been linked to a wide variety of health
disorders and I request my representatives support
any legislation that will enable me to make educated
and informed decisions on the foods I chose to eat and
how I feed my family.
I request, at a minimum, that you support legislation
requiring the labeling of all products containing GMOs.
