In a country that labels everything from cosmetics to T-shirts, it's surprising that there are no laws in the U.S. requiring labeling of genetically engineered foods. Yet 9 out of 10 Americans believe that genetically engineered (GMO) foods should be labeled.
The California GMO Right to Know Campaign hopes to change all this by giving people the truth about what they are buying. The grassroots group has successfully placed Proposition 37 on the ballot this November and if it passes, GMO foods will have to be labeled if they are to be sold in California. But it would also be a win country-wide as manufacturers would likely roll out labels that conform to California laws across the nation.
What can you do to support GMO food labeling and avoid GE foods when shopping for your family?
