We have the right to know if our food is genetically modified. More than 40 countries have either banned GE food outright or have laws requiring the labeling of it. In the United States, specifically Minnesota, we want the freedom to choose what we are feeding ourselves and our families. GE foods have never been proven safe for human consumption. Human health effects of consuming GE foods can include toxic and allergic reactions, antibiotic resistance, immune suppression, and other serious illnesses. We are the people of the state of Minnesota, and we promote our right of general welfare, and the right to know what we are putting into our bodies.
