I received the following email today and jumped right on the bandwagon. Lack of information is a roadblock on the path to good health. When food companies fight so hard to conceal the ingredients in their food products, we need to tear down that barrier.

So glad Gwyneth and I think alike 🙂

Gail,

I am writing to ask for your help to prevent a terrible law from being passed. On August 5, I am joining Just Label It in Washington, D.C to fight for mandatory GMO labeling – something supported by 90 percent of Americans.

Last week, the House of Representatives passed what we call the Deny Americans the Right to Know – or DARK – Act. This bill would make it effectively impossible for America to enact the same kind of mandatory GMO labeling that exists in 64 other nations – and it would overturn existing GMO labeling laws in states like Vermont, Connecticut and Maine.

There’s still time for us to make our voices heard. On August 5, we want to bring 100,000 petition signatures to show Senators and the President we’re serious about our right to know and choose what we’re eating and how our foods are grown.

We need your help: Will you sign our petition today?

Click here to join our petition: Tell Senators and the White House to oppose the DARK Act and stand up for consumers’ right to know.

There’s no dancing around it. Last week’s House vote was bought and paid for by Big Food and its allies – like Monsanto – that have a vested interest in keeping Americans in the dark about their food.

But now it’s our turn to show our strength: If we can come together, we can stop this bill before it becomes a reality.

Help us reach 100,000 Americans against the DARK Act by August 5: Click here to call on Senators and the White House to support our right to know what we’re feeding our families by opposing the DARK Act.

Thank you for joining Just Label It and me. I will keep you posted on our progress.

All my best wishes,

Gwyneth Paltrow

P.S. When it comes to the food we feed our families, we all need to make our voices heard. Click here to sign our petition and urge Senators and the White House to reject the DARK Act.
