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.”
At just $2.99, Label It Now is available at iBookstore here and for download on iTunes here. All proceeds from the book go to support of the Just Label It campaign.
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.
