...If our food has been genetically engineered
So...what are genetically engineered foods?
Genetically engineered foods, also called GE or GMOs, are those created with plants or animals that have had their genetic material altered by adding DNA from different species in ways that cannot occur in nature or with traditional breeding
- 92% of Americans want genetically engineered foods labeled
- 40+ countries have mandatory labeling of GMOs
- 900.000 people have sent comments to the FDA for labeling of GMOs
The FDA could soon approve GE salmon, the first genetically engineered animal in the U.S. supply
Scientists recently found GE insecticide in corn showing up in the umbilical cords of pregnant women*
GE crops have the potential to introduce new toxins and allergens into our food**
