Introducing the release of a great new e-book on genetically engineered foods!
Label It Now – What You Need to Know About Genetically Engineered Foods written by Gary Hirshberg, our CE-Yo; Britt Lundgren; our Director of Organic and Sustainable Agriculture; and Charles Benbrook, the Organic Center’s Chief Scientist launched today.
This book cuts through the complicated scientific debate about genetically modified food to put forth a simple premise: We all have a right to know what’s in our food. Genetically engineered foods have rapidly become a part of our food supply, with little oversight or scrutiny. Without a requirement to label foods containing these ingredients, we are forced to be guinea pigs in a giant experiment involving our health and the environment. Co-author Gary Hirshberg, CE-Yo of organic leader Stonyfield says “I have witnessed too much carelessness to remain silent. For the sake of our children, our behavior must change.”
Plus, earlier today our CE-Yo Gary Hirshberg spoke about Labels for Genetically Modified Foods on The Diane Rehm Show on NPR. You can listen to the show here.
