“Everyday millions of people, unknowingly, eat many different genetically engineered foods, including: sweet corn, soy beans, canola, sugar beets, alfalfa, and zucchini. Right now, these foods ARE NOT required to be LABELED, and are often misleadingly advertised as “NATURAL”. In fact, according to the Grocery Manufacturing Association, an estimated 75 to 80 % of processed food in the United States contains genetically engineered ingredients. NO NOTICE is given to consumers.”  (1)

Dennis John Kucinich, U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 10th congressional district.

(Serving since 1997. He was furthermore a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections.) (2)
