"Did you know that food manufacturers do NOT have to tell you when they are using genetically engineered ingredients? That's surprising in our country - when we're so used to seeing labels and warnings on everything. Most other developed countries do require labeling ‚Äì the European Union, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Russia and even China. 93% of Americans think that we should know when a food contains anything genetically modified. We just want to be able to make an informed choice. It's a complex issue, and it's easy to get lost in the technology and jargon. But there's a great new website that will help you understand what's going on - and most importantly - how you can help! There are some easy things you can do right from your computer. Visit justlabelit.org, watch the hysterical (and sobering) video, sign up for their newsletter, and find out how you can make a difference for your family and for the future. "
