GMO Labeling

Whereas the European Union and various other countries have either banned or require the labeling of genetically engineered foods due to the inevitable health hazards they may cause;

Whereas 91% of Maine believes we have the right to know what we are eating;

Whereas the full extent of health effects of genetically engineered foods are not yet known nor have they been proven to be safe;

We the undersigned call on local, state, and federal lawmakers to require the labeling of genetically engineered foods.

    Whereas I believe genetically modified, roundup, agent orange glyphosate saturated toxic growth disguised as nutrition is an abomination and SHOULD BE BANNED, as it promotes illness, death and destruction!!! I choose non poisonous foods, so at the very least, label it so we can avoid it as the toxic plague it truly is!!! How much toxic pesticides are in the dinner you feed your loved ones?


    GMOs are saturated with Poison!!!

    Another conviction for Monsanto at $93 million for – you guessed it! Poisoning!!!


    Monsanto slammed by courts with $93 million dioxin settlement, poisoning people AGAIN. November 2013 in West Virginia: "Under the settlement, thousands of Nitro-area residents will be eligible for medial monitoring and property cleanups as …part of the $93 million deal.


    For more than 50 years, the Monsanto plant churned out herbicides, rubber products and other chemicals. The plant’s production of Agent Orange, a defoliant deployed widely in the Vietnam War, created dioxin as a toxic chemical byproduct.


    Dioxin has been linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities, endometriosis, infertility and suppressed immune functions. The chemical builds up in tissue over time, meaning that even a small exposure can accumulate to dangerous levels."

    Make our voices heard, we want the right to choose our food, knowing what actual what we are consuming. As a consumer, don’t you want to know what your eating and what we are feeding our children? There is strength in knowledge.
