Forum to Discuss GMO Health Risks and CT’s Labeling Bill
By Analiese Paik
Please join Tara Cook-Littman and Beth Beisel of Right to Know CT in Farmington on Tuesday, April 10 at 7 pm for a community discussion about GMOs, HB 5117, and our right to know what’s in our food.
Did you know?
- GMOs are not tested for safety by the FDA and the FDA does not require biotech manufacturers to conduct long-term safety studies.
- GMOs are labeled in 50 other countries in the world including China, Japan, S. Korea, Australia and all member of the EU?
- GMOs have been linked to health risks in humans and animals and the proliferation of super weeds.
- The easiest way to avoid GMOs when shopping in the grocery store is to buy Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified foods.
Connecticut could be the first state to pass a mandatory GMO labeling bill. What does the bill mean for consumers and why do prominent agricultural groups in our state oppose it? Learn the facts, dispel the myths, and advocate for our right to know what’s in our food. Please invite your friends.
