Big News! The Senate just made the right decision in voting AGAINST a food bill that would effectively ruin GMO labeling across the country and keep Americans in the dark about what they are eating.
The bill, appropriately deemed the DARK Act (Denying Americans the Right to Know act), would halt states’ decisions to enact mandatory GMO labeling.
Just in case you aren’t totally sure, GMOs (in this case) refer to genetically modified foods which are used in the food supply. Biotechnology companies genetically modify crops like corn, food companies use it in food, and individuals have no idea that the food has essentially been genetically altered. GMOs also promote heavy pesticide use, adding to the toxicity of foods we consume.
The bill claims to solve labeling problems in the country, but it does just the opposite.
