- Thomas Edison

Cancer is a political problem more than it is a medical problem.

"Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food," said Phil Angell, Monsanto's director of corporate communications. "Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA's job." 
- New York Times, October 25, 1998

"What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it's doing are as different as night and day." - Dr. Herbert Ley, Former FDA Commissioner

"The FDA serves as the pharmaceutical industry's watchdog, which can be called upon to attack and destroy a potential competitor under the guise of protecting the public." - Dr. James P. Carter

"FAST TRACK BILL" WILL MAKE IT ILLEGAL to LABEL GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS!

  Why Should You Take Action now? Because parents should at least have the right to decide whether or not they want to buy Genetically modified foods (GMO) for their families.

Genetic modified foods have already caused harm (in Japan and Iowa) and even death (also in Japan). They are outlawed in several European countries because of this. However, in the USA large producers such as Monsanto are succeeding in keeping the harmful side effects of GMOs away from the media and out of the public's attention. One strategy is to prevent labeling of GMO food. This will allow producers of GMOs to have more sales in Europe. However, parents would loose their right to decide whether or not they want to buy GMO food for their families! If GMO foods are not labeled, concerned parents will not know what they are buying.

Bill HR 3005 not only makes it politically correct not to label GMO food, HR 3005 makes it illegal for someone to say that their product is not genetically modified!

Bill HR 3005, "Trade Promotion Authority," is currently being considered in the US House of Representatives. It is also known as Fast Track. A vote in Congress is likely in the next two weeks.

Pro-GMO legislators have put in language in HR 3005 that would make GMO labeling ILLEGAL as well as eliminating the precautionary principle for GMO regulation. The Democratic "alternative" to this bill, though better in some aspects, has the EXACT SAME LANGUAGE regarding GMOs. If either bill passes, then the US would be able to force European countries to accept unlabeled US GMO products!

Fast Track would also allow the President to negotiate trade pacts like the Free Trade Area of the Americas without any input from Congress. Consequently, Congress would waive the right to criticize the absence of labor, human rights or environmental provisions in the final pact!

What can you do? Use the AFL-CIO toll-free number to call Congress 1-800-393-1082. You will have to enter a zip code in order to reach representatives from your area.

Tell them you are a constituent (if you are) or that you live in their area. Tell them you oppose Fast Track and you want to know if they do too.

  You can also send an email message to Congress NOW by visiting:

enter your zip code in the Take Action Now field.

Subject: Fwd: Call Tom Harkin today for vote on GE Labelling !


Dear Iowa Friends,

I've learned that Senator Harkin will take a stand supporting
labeling of genetically engineered foods if he hears from 10,000 or
more Iowa residents asking him to do so. Would you please consider
calling Senator Harkin's office today to say you want him to vote for
GE Labelling?  (The receptionist also asked for my Iowa address.)

PLEASE NOTE: A CALL  OR LETTER IS NEEDED TODAY - !

Can you:
1.  Call Senator Tom Harkin at (202) 224-3254.
2.  Send this request to others in the state and ask them to call
Senator Harkin.
3. I.C. folk: Come to the Democratic Caucus tonight  (Monday, 2/11, 7
P.M. at City High) and be heard on this issue.

Thank you for your support in this initiative, which may have a
powerful impact because of Senator Harkin's far-reaching influence.

Warmly,
Dick
