Just Label It Campaign – Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

MOVIE NIGHT Increasing your wellness education Just Label It  - GMOs

This is both a US issue AND a Canadian issue

Hi wellness advocates,

I thought you might want to view this US campaign aimed at getting GMO foods labelled.  In California, the GMO labelling fight was lost this week so expect to see a lot more campaigning to change the way food is labelled in the US.

Thinking that this does not affect us in Canada?  Think again.  As Canada is a major importer of US foods you should be concerned.

We also have no policy at this time that requires foods in Canada to be labelled if they are GMO.  Here is a good video from CBC that tells the Canadian story (April 2012)  http://www.cbc.ca/archives/categories/economy-business/agriculture/genetically-modified-food-a-growing-debate/identifying-genetically-modified-products.html

I agree – Just Label It.

You can make your own choice once you know.

For now, I will eat organic as I know my food is GMO free according to organic certification.

To your choice in knowing what is in your food,

Jo-Ann Blondin, your 9CupChallenge Partner
