These are the U.S. Representatives who voted to ban GMO labeling and deny your right to know what you're eating


(NaturalNews) "We should not raise prices on consumers based on the wishes of a handful of activists," said Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), who just became consumer enemy number one after he decided to author a bill that destroys any chance Americans have of knowing what's in their food, specifically whether or not they contain genetically modified ingredients, or GMOs.

What Pompeo isn't telling you, and in fact is deliberately covering up, is that Americans overwhelmingly support GMO labeling (we're talking in the 90th percentile); you can view proof of that support here, here and here.

Pompeo, who has likely been paid VERY well by Big Food lobbyists to spearhead this initiative, has made it his mission to make sure that you and your family continue eating foods made from crops that are genetically engineered to withstand high doses of Monsanto's Roundup, which by the way, its primary ingredient, glyphosate, was labeled as being "probably" carcinogenic to humans by the World Health Organization last spring.

Scientists also concluded that glyphosate is "genotoxic," meaning that it damages DNA and there's actually no safe level of exposure.

But Pompeo doesn't want you to know any of that. In fact, he's worried that GMO labeling will only confuse you. Are you insulted? Well, you should be.

Named the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015 by a bunch of politicians who know next to nothing about GMOs, and the DARK Act (Denying Americans the Right to Know) by passionate food activists and consumer groups who have practically dedicated their lives to bringing awareness about the dangers of GMOs, the legislation that was recently passed in the House Committee prevents all states from enacting their own GMO labeling laws, ever.

It also strips states like Vermont, which already passed GMO labeling, their right from doing so.

Below is a list of politicians actively working to keep you and your family in the dark regarding the dangers of GMOs. Click here for their contact information.
