Labeling genetically modified foods in Washington
GMOs are poison
Reporter Melissa Allison missed the most important point regarding foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs): the health risks. [“On voters’ plates: genetically engineered crops,” page one, Aug. 11.]
Independent, long-term feeding trials on laboratory animals fed genetically engineered foods show serious health effects: tumors, low birth weight and shortened life spans.
GMOs are nothing more than slow-acting poisons masquerading as food.
Big, corporate agribusinesses would have these poisons crammed down our throats without our knowledge.
Vote “Yes” on Initiative 522 to label GMOs in food.
