The secrecy surrounding the commercialization of genetically engineered food is an issue that should concern all of us. We deserve the full right to know what we're really ingesting as food, as Eileen Mitro, Ukiah Coordinator for the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act Initiative, puts it "when we go to a grocery store, we buy something and see a listing of ingredients on a label. Consumers have the right to transparency in labeling." That is the aim of the California ballot initiative which needs 504,760 valid signatures to qualify for the November 2012 election, giving consumers the right to decide on GE foods to be labeled. Already, 500,000 valid signatures have been collected. The power is in your hands, support the initiative today.
