Dear Citizen for Health,
As You Sow did it! They reached the $6,000 mark in their nanoparticles crowdfunding campaign. Now they can test 2 more food products - Pop-Tarts and M&M's!
And there is more great news. Their recent media splash and your contributions are getting companies' attention! The maker of Trident gum - Mondelez, the world's second largest food manufacturer - called them to say it is not using nano in its foods and is requiring suppliers to provide nano-free ingredients. We want to make sure all other food companies follow Mondelez' lead by not using nano in their foods until proven safe.
So instead of testing Trident gum, As You Sow is swapping in Betty Crocker Whipped Frosting to test for nano (it has the same coloring additive that they found in Dunkin' Donuts).
As of today, they still need to raise $2,870. Your support before March 13th will make sure they can test Betty Crocker's frosting <http://igg.me/at/nanoays>, share the results with you and, if necessary, work with the company to remove nano from its frostings and other foods.
Please support the campaign<http://igg.me/at/nanoays> today!
As always, thank you for your participation.
The Citizens for Health Team
