At AllergyKids, our primary concern is protecting the health of those with food allergies, particularly from the hidden dangers and foreign food proteins now found in our food supply.
So when we learned about genetically engineered foods, their foreign proteins, new allergens and the fact that not a single clinical, long-term human safety trial on genetically modified foods has ever been published, despite the fact that these ingredients were introduced into the American food supply in the 1990s without labels, we felt that it was vital that these foods carry labels.
A mother has the right to protect her unborn baby, a father has the right to protect his son, and we all have the right, as Americans, to know what’s in the food we are eating.
So we were thrilled when a friend shared this new rap video. Because when it comes to teaching others about the dangers in the food supply, it’s not a one-size-fits-all kind of project.
So if you want to help teach others about genetically modified foods and why you are concerned, but haven’t yet found a way, this little rap just might help.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ~Margaret Meade
