The Kids Right To Know, GMOs Just Label It! Campaign is founded on the belief that we have the “Right to Know” what’s in our food, helping to create mass awareness about the dangers of GMOs and to push for their mandatory labeling. Funds received will help with the expenses of printing, videos, touring and GMO awareness, for better health and to help save the environment.
”One Planet for All, All for one Planet" Rachel Parent
To raise funds to cover the costs associated with the campaign, including printing, creating videos, and touring to increase awareness (particularly for children) about the dangers of unlabeled GMOs that unsuspecting parents are feeding their families every day. Foods from companies such as Kellogg’s, Kraft, Sara Lee, McCain’s, Nestle, and Frito-Lay, just to name a few.
Rachel has devoted years now to writing and speaking about GMOs. She believes that the planet is facing a real crisis! Monsanto, by creating GMOs is trying to re-invent nature, with the potential to completely devastate our entire eco system. She’s worried that her future won’t include any natural foods. She’s also worried about the health risks GMOs pose, including allergies, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, autism, cancer, and reproductive disorders to name a few. This has motivated her to speak and educate kids and families in Canada. Her hope is that a well informed public will pressure the government, the media, and the multinational food manufacturers to do the right thing by labeling GMO foods, giving consumers the right to choose. Hopefully, this will lead to consumer rejection of these products, and ultimately the complete elimination of GMO ingredients before it’s too late!
