We have the right to know! Let’s label GMOs in New York State! Green Party of New York is a proud member of the GMO Free NY coalition.  Download the paper version of this petition here. 

We have a right to know about food we eat and feed our families, but currently we don’t have that ability when it comes to genetically engineered (GE) foods.

The number and variety of GE foods reaching grocery shelves is accelerating. There are no regulatory requirements for long-term testing for human health risks. Until we know without a doubt that GE crops are safe to eat, we should have a choice about whether we want to eat them. The use of GMO crops also pose significant environmental risks, including the increased use of pesticides.

Whereas the European Union and various other countries have either banned or require the labeling of genetically engineered foods due to the health hazards they may cause;

Whereas we have the right to know what we are eating;

Whereas the full extent of health effects of genetically engineered foods are not yet known nor have they been proven to be safe;

We the undersigned call on local, state, and federal lawmakers to require the labeling of genetically engineered foods, starting with passage of the NYS GMO Food Labeling Bill (A3525 / S3835)

If we really want to improve the nutritive quality of our foods we also also need to label how early in the fruit and vegetable maturity an item was harvested (too many too-green products being passed off as ‘ripe" and ’locally grown’), and also the amount of water added to meat products like ground beef, ground chicken, etc.
