As a candidate Obama called for GMO labelling: time to do it as president

GMO Labelling: America's Right To Know

Breaking: Obama Promised to Label GMOs from Food Democracy Now! on Vimeo.

Four years ago Obama stated that GMOs need to be labelled because people have the right to know what they are eating. Since then as president however, nothing has happened and this has not even been mentioned.To the contrary, nothing but Monsanto insiders have been appointed by him with Monsanto and other companies getting preferential treatment with no regulation of their products and no consumer disclosure. With more information coming out about the health dangers of GMOS and the reality of environmental/economic effects, it is imperative that Obama speak out on this as president when it matters most.

At the link you can tell Obama that GMOs need to be labelled now. It is time to stand up to the companies that use loopholes and vague references such as "substantial equivalence" to gain profit from these unnecessary untested organisms that threaten our health and environment.

I personally want to see them banned but until we can get momentum on that, labelling is the essential first step.

  1. The point is to do what ever has to be done t get re-elected. Hid actions have been consistent with supporting big AG not protecting consumers. Don't believe in spontaneous conscious, money is still what makes his presidency possible.
