Urgent Action Needed to Keep Control of OUR Food!

After a long, complicated process on which this dangerous bill was on and off the table, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act S.510 was passed through to the House for a final lame duck vote which could be as soon as today!

In short, this bill is put forth by large Agrobusiness companies such as the infamous Monsanto, and threatens our right to keep the freedom to choose what food to grow and put in our bodies. It goes directly against the localvore, slow food movement and is a big, scary step in the wrong direction.

Please contact your representative TODAY and urge them to vote NO on S.510. Citizens for Health has a great campaign against S.510 and have an easy form to use in contacting your representative here.

For more detailed info regarding this bill, here is a great article from Natural News.

The vote will take place in the next 48 hours so we must act now!

Grow on.
