Genetically Engineered Foods

I truly believe in what the Environmental Working Group is doing to help consumers stay healthy.

Their efforts to inform us about certain dangers are ongoing and they need our support. Please take a look at a current email that was sent to me from the EWG, and visit their website at

The buzz about genetically engineered foods is getting stronger by the day – and much of it is thanks to you.

More than 100,000 of you signed our petition demanding that genetically engineered foods be labeled. That’s an amazing number, and we thank you for speaking out. Clearly you have questions about these foods and what it all means for your health and well-being.

EWG heard you loud and clear. So not only are we going to continue to press the FDA to require labeling, we’re going to add genetically engineered information to our Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce. If the government won’t tell you what’s in your food, then EWG will.

But the only way we can keep uncovering the truth about our food, take the fight to Washington and hold corporations accountable is with your help today. To stay on track with all our research and to continue standing up for you, we need an extra $65,000 by March 31. Can I count on you for a donation today? $10, $15, even $25 can make a huge difference.

Getting you the information you need is at the heart of everything we do at EWG. You want to know what’s in the food you eat, the sunscreens and cosmetics you put on your body, and the cleaning products you use in your home. That’s why we’ve created our Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce, Sunscreen Guide, Skin Deep Cosmetics Database and the soon-to-be-launched Cleaners Database.

You told us that you wanted more information on genetically engineered ingredients in your food – and EWG listened. We’re preparing new information to pair with our popular Dirty Dozen list to release this year. Your support will make that possible.

When you ask us for new research, we want nothing more than to say yes every single time. But each research project we do costs money, which is why we need to ask you for help. The only way we can keep giving you comprehensive information about what’s safe to eat and what isn’t – like our Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen – is if we meet our goal of raising $65,000 by March 31.

If it’s important to you to know more about the food you eat and the products you use, I hope you’ll give whatever you can right now.

Every day I hear from people like you about how much you depend on the research and guides we provide. I hope we can keep on delivering this important information to you for many years to come.

President, Environmental Working Group
