help- doesn't take much effort or time and your help matters! Please
forward this message far and wide.


CONSUMER RIGHT TO KNOW - ONE MILLION IN 98 CAMPAIGN

PETITION TO SECURE THE MANDATORY LABELING OF ALL GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS
Submitted to the President of the United States, Congress, USDA and FDA

New substances are being introduced into our foods via a technology called
genetic engineering. A growing number of scientists and physicians are
voicing concern over the possible health and environmental risks from these
foods. Current laws and policies do not require the food industry to label
these new genetically engineered foods. Without labels consumers lose the
freedom to choose what they will eat and feed their families. This
etition upholds the right of consumers to make informed choices.

As a citizen of the United States of America, I strongly urge the passage
of legislation and policies to mandate the clear and accurate labeling of
all foods derived from, processed with, containing or consisting of
genetically engineered organisms before they are released into any and all
commercial markets.

For more information, hard copies of the petition and for friends without
