Why Label GMOs? Colbert says, “Just Eat It.”

60 countries around the world require GMO labeling. But not the U.S.

Why do we need to know what’s in our food? Who cares what we’re feeding our children? Ignorance is bliss, after all.

If you’re like me and think we have a right to know what’s in our food, take action here: justlabelit.org.

Over 90 percent of Americans want to label GMO foods. But food giants poured millions of dollars into defeating the Washington GMO labeling initiative. They did the same in California.

A consortium that includes General Mills, Nestle USA , PepsiCo, Monsanto,, DuPont and other corporate giants, were key contributors to the roughly $22 million raised to campaign against the bill, much of that spent by Nov. 5, according to Washington Public Disclosure Commission figures on Tuesday.

That far outstrips the roughly $7.9 million raised by supporters of the labeling initiative, according to the Commission.
