Citizens for Health Alert: Michael J. Fox Said What About GMOs?

Dear Citizen for Health,
Do you know how the food you eat is produced?
As you know, the fight to pass Prop 37 in California was unsuccessful - due to the millions spent by the No on 37 campaign to spread lies and obfuscate a very simple issue: We have a Right To Know what's in what we eat and drink, and feed to our families. However, while the proposition failed to pass, the campaign was successful in other ways. Most important: it galvanized the support for labeling GMOs nationwide and set the stage to bring the fight to Washington, D.C. while efforts to secure your Right To Know state-by-state move forward. We will continue to advocate for Right To Know policy and bring you important information to share as well as opportunities for action.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may soon approve genetically engineered salmon, which would be the first genetically engineered animal on supermarket shelves in the United States. And the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is considering a new type of herbicide-resistant corn that will encourage the use of more chemicals in our food supply.
Bottom line? Our leaders won't let you make informed consumer choices at the grocery store because current policy doesn't require that genetically engineered foods be labeled.
That's why a slew of celebrities have joined millions of Americans to speak out in favor of labeling genetically engineered foods. Folks like Michael J. Fox from Spin City and Family Ties, Julie Bowen from Modern Family, Tom Colicchio from Top Chef, Emily VanCamp from Revenge, and many more. That's right – some pretty famous folks are fighting for your Right To Know and are raising awareness about labeling. See what they had to say in this fun video featuring new music from Ziggy Marley.
Can you guess what Chevy Chase said about GMOs?
Or which high-profile moms joined the video?
You'll find out who said what by taking a moment to watch the brand new video from the Just Label It campaign. And then be sure to contact the FDA and Congress in favor of labeling genetically engineered foods.
Together, we'll help make this country a place where every family and every child knows what they're eating.
