Earlier today, Food Nation Radio Network discussed our interview with U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH). He demanded GMO labeling on the House floor and voiced his support for Proposition 37 which would require labeling of GMO food in California.

Like nearly all Americans, Kucinich believes consumers have a right to know what is in their food and where their food comes from. He has been one of the only members of Congress to step out on the precipice of GMO food labeling, despite the large amount of money GMO companies spend in Washington.

Here is his impassioned speech from the House floor:

Elizabeth Dougherty has been a food writer for over 10 years, attended culinary school and holds a Bachelor’s degree, Magna Cum Laude in Hospitality, Business and Labor Relations from NYIT. She has been a talk show host of nearly 150 episodes of Food Nation Radio which airs each Saturday afternoon at 4 on WWBA AM820 News and  other stations.
