I would like to address the issue of the lack of labeling for GMOs (genetically modified organism). I feel powerless when I go to the market and try to shop for healthy food for my family because I don’t fully know what we are eating.
I try to stay away from anything with the most common genetically engineered ingredients - canola, soy, corn and sugar beets - because I believe that the lack of labels on these foods means there’s something to hide. '
We have a right to know what we’re eating. As a concerned Queens resident, I want the state to make it law to label genetically engineered food for the health of my family.
