About U.S. Right To Know

The Problem

Our food system is not safe. America's epidemic of food-related diseases — obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, some types of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease — is the logical result of a food system that prioritizes profits over health.

How our food is produced and regulated, what it contains, and how it impacts our health are among many questions the food industry needs to do a better job answering.

What We Are Doing About It

At U.S. Right to Know, we stand up for the right to know what's in our food, and what goes on behind the scenes in political decisions about our food.

U.S. Right to Know is a nonprofit organization that investigates the risks associated with the corporate food system, and the food industry's practices and influence on public policy. We promote the free market principle of transparency – in the marketplace and in politics – as crucial to building a better, healthier food system.
