LAST WEEK SEATTLE ...THIS WEEK OAKLAND
Attend the largest rally against genetically engineered (GE) foods in the
U.S. to date!
This Monday in Oakland, the FDA is holding a public meeting to get feedback
on their policies related to GE foods.
Let the FDA know that the American public demands GE foods be thoroughly
tested and labeled before they reach supermarket shelves.
Currently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires no
pre-market testing or labeling of genetically engineered food. Corporations
developing GE foods are merely encouraged to consult with the FDA if they
think there may be any health related risks. Yet every day, whether we know
it or not, most of us eat foods containing genetically engineered
