An Impassioned Letter from Eden Foods About GE Foods

Sure, the presidential election in November will get most of the headlines, but another ballot battle is intensifying. If passed, the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, which I wrote about earlier this month, could fundamentally change the way we eat in this country.

Here's an email I received last week from Eden Foods, a great company and major supporter of the act. (Even if you don't donate to the cause, at least share this with friends; the more people that know what is going on, the better!)
"Ladies and Gentlemen,

"We have an unprecedented opportunity to score a major victory for fairness in our food system, and we need your help right now. On May 2nd, a massive grassroots corps delivered nearly a million signatures to 58 counties in California along with this message: We're restoring our fundamental right to know what's in our food.

"The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act
will be on the ballot in November. Once passed by voters, this initiative will require labeling of all genetically engineered foods and food ingredients, and ban the routine industry practice of labeling or making GMO-tainted foods as 'natural.'

"We are gathering together with food, farm, health, consumer and environmental groups across the U.S.A. to deliver this message:

"We have the right to know what's in the food we eat and feed our families – and this time, we're not going to take no for an answer!

"The right to know belongs to all of us. It's about our food, our health, and our environment. We are all in this together. With your help, we can take back control of our food supply. Please donate to the California Right to Know GMO Labeling Campaign today.
