Summer is here, and you know what I love? Corn on the cob.

Personally, I just like a little butter. Or maybe a little salt and lots of black pepper. (I've heard of a maple syrup and chipotle concoction, but haven't had a chance to try that yet!

Whether it's corn on the cob, or big juicy tomatoes, or a pint of raspberries, summer is a great time to eat whatever's fresh off the farm -- nature's bounty at its finest.

But these days, it seems that food is a bit more complicated. Additives, preservatives, artificial flavorings - not to mention, genetically-engineered food.

Maybe you want to eat 100% organic. Maybe you don't mind some artificial something-or-other.

But the one thing I think we can all agree on: You should have the right to know and choose what's in your food.

The big multinational food, chemical, and pesticide companies -- like Monsanto, DuPont, and Dow -- would rather keep you in the dark.

That doesn't work for me. That's why I support the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act.

I hope you'll join me in calling on the U.S. Senate to pass this critical bill. Whether you're a farmers' market regular or a fast-food junkie, every one of us should have the right to know what we're eating,


Senator Jeff Merkley
