Ohio Democrat, Congressman, Dennis Kucinich, stated that 90 percent of Americans want GMO labeling, and have a right to know if their food is genetically engineered. Kucinich is the sponsor of HR 5353, a legislation that will provide for a national food labeling law.
“Monsanto has been a prime mover in the influence and corruption of the political process of how food is grown, tested, and labeled,” says Congressman Kucinich.
“In 1992 the Food and Drug Administration decided that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are the functional equivalent of conventional foods. They arrived at this decision without testing GMOs for allergenicity, toxicity, antibiotic resistance and functional characteristics. As a result hundreds of millions of acres of GMO crops were planted in America without the knowledge or consent of the American People: no safety testing and no long term health studies.“
