Right To Know About GMO: Everywhere But US

June 14th 2012. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont introduces an amendment to the farm bill that would require labeling of Genetically Modified Foods (GMO).

In this speech, he tells it exactly like it is: Americans deserve to know how their food has been produced. In 49 other countries around the world, including the EU and China, this is allowed. Why is it not here?

Simple: In the past, Monsanto threatened to sue, in this case the state of Vermont if this bill passed, which it did by a vote of 9 to 1, but never made it any further because of this threat.

"We have a large powerful multinational corporation who is more concerned about their own profits than they are about the food they are eating. The Sanders - Boxer Consumer's Right To Know About Genetically Engineered Food Amendment #2310 is about allowing states to honor the wishes of their residents and allowing consumers to know what they are eating."

According to polls going back over 10 years, over 90% of the American public is in favor of states being allowed to label GMO foods. By the way, the FDA requires labeling of over 3,000 ingredients and processes.
