Food Labeling Should Be Adopted

Currently a bill is being considered by the New York State Legislature that would mandate the labeling of genetically modified (GMO) foods. As consumers we should have the right to know what is in the food we eat and how it is produced. Many people want to avoid GMO foods for health and environmental reasons. However, without labeling it is very difficult to make informed decisions.

Monsanto and other corporate giants are spending millions of dollars to lobby against labeling requirements. Their reasons should be obvious to every consumer.

According to a 2013 New York Times poll, 93 percent of the public want GMO labeling. Sixty-four countries around the world already label GMO foods. It is time for New York to follow suit.

I urge your readers to contact Assemblywoman Schimmel. Let her know that you support her vote in favor of Assembly Bill A 3525, the GMO labeling bill. It would also be important to contact Senator Martins.
