I just added the petition: Labelling of GMO in UK.
It would be great if you you signed because:
At present GMO soy (and other) feed is given to chickens, pigs, cows, sheep and other animals in Europe. The meat from the animals, their eggs, milk and other products are not labelled as containing GMO's. There has been research produced that has found chemicals from GMO's in human breast tissue which could easily transfer to milk. There has been no long term independent research carried out in Europe (by scientists unconnected to the chemical companies and where the research has not been paid for by the chemical companies) on whether animals fed on GMO feed might contain GMO chemicals in their meat, eggs or milk. We therefore do not know the long term health problems, such as cancer, that eating these products might cause. I am 13 years old and could be eating these products all my life and am very worried about their impact. Therefore the consumer has the right to know which products contain meat, eggs or milk from animals fed on GMO's feed, so that they can choose to avoid these products if they want to. The consumers are the ones that should make the decision whether they eat these GMO fed animals and take the risk with the health of themselves and their families, not you. Watch my video on how I feel about GMO's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bft6KzPlZEU
Real change happens when everyday people like you and I come together and stand up for what we believe in. Together we can reach lots of people and help create change around this important issue.
After you've signed the petition please can you share it?
