Tell the Senate: Support the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act

Below is an email from Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon. Senator Merkley started a petition on the MoveOn website, where anyone can start their own online petition.

Whether it's corn on the cob, or big juicy tomatoes, or a pint of raspberries, summer is a great time to eat whatever's fresh off the farm -- nature's bounty at its finest.

But these days, it seems that food is a bit more complicated. Additives, preservatives, artificial flavorings -- not to mention, genetically-engineered food.

Maybe you want to eat 100% organic. Maybe you don't mind some artificial something-or-other.

But the one thing I think we can all agree on: You should have the right to know and choose what's in your food.

The big multinational food, chemical, and pesticide companies -- like Monsanto, DuPont, and Dow -- would rather keep you in the dark.

That doesn't work for me. That's why I support the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act.
