Gwyneth Paltrow went to Washington on Wednesday to fight for what's on your plate.The actress, GOOP founder and famed conscious uncoupler spoke on Capitol Hill, pushing for mandatory labeling of foods made with genetically modified ingredients or GMOs."Much the way that I want to know if my food is farm-raised or wild, or if my orange juice is fresh or from concentrate, I believe that we also have the right...as Americans to know what’s in our food," said Paltrow.
Paltrow’s appearance on Capitol Hill comes weeks after lawmakers passed legislation saying that states can't require food labels to indicate whether or not GMOs are included. She was escorted by Sens. John Tester, D-Mt.; Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.; Patrick Leahy D-Vt. and Richard Blumenthal, D-Ct. The senators are pushing a bill, sponsored by Boxer, which would require labels for all foods produced using GMOs and ban manufacturers from labeling GMO foods as natural. Apparently, they also wanted a couple selfies.
