Letter: GMO? OMG!
Do you suffer from allergies and health problems? According to the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, the consumption of genetically engineered food, such as corn, sugar, canola oil, soy, vegetables and fruits, can cause serious risks to human and animal health. GMOs (genetically modified organisms) have been part of the American diet for the past 20 years. GMOs may be associated with your health issues, but how would you know if your food is not labeled for GMOs?
About four years ago, I changed my diet. I eat more organics and less processed food. I feel more energized, and my headaches are almost gone. As a consumer I want a choice and prefer to eat GMO-free, because my body stays healthier. I find grocery shopping a challenge, since food products are not labeled whether or not they contain GMOs. As a New Hampshire citizen, I deserve the right to know what’s in my food, a basic right that the people in 64 other countries already enjoy but has been denied to Americans for the past 20 years.
This is why I support HB 660, New Hampshire’s labeling law. Find more info at NHRightToKnowGMOs.org.
