On Wednesday, the US Senate will have a hearing on “Agriculture Biotechnology: A Look at Federal Regulation and Stakeholder Perspectives.” While they haven’t shared the specific agenda, our sources tell us that this will be in support of HR 1599, officially called “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015 the voluntary labeling law already passed in the House. We call it the DARK Act, because it will Deny Americans the Right to Know. We don’t expect there to be a (strong) push for S.511, Senator Boxer’s Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act. By examining the witness list, and from past experiences, we can reasonably predict that this will be very ugly, with many lies,partial truths, and mis-information. Read More

CALL TO ACTION
Contact the Florida Keys Tourism Board and tell them Genetically Engineered mosquitoes are bad for tourism. Tell them you won’t be vacationing in Florida if they release GE mosquitoes. 855-969-5216
READ MORE: Florida needs our help. GE mosquitoes have been shipped to Florida and pending approval, could be released in the Keys. British biotech company, Oxitec, is set to release experimental genetically engineered mosquitoes in Key Haven, Florida as early as this year. Proper environmental impact studies have not been performed. Claims that these mosquitoes are only male Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, are unable to reproduce or will control dengue fever are either completely false or unsubstantiated. In actuality, instances of dengue fever rose in Brazil where Oxitec performed a test release. Also, thousands of biting females will likely be released. Once they’re out, there is no recall!
