GMO Labeling – Agree or Disagree?

 

I have been against the United States NOT labeling GMO foods for a long time now. It’s not fair to us to not know what is going into our bodies! Whether or not to require labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods is a key issue in the ongoing debate over the risks and benefits of food crops produced using biotechnology. The most common GE crops in the United States are soybean, corn, cotton, and canola. Because many processed food products contain soybean or corn ingredients (e.g., high fructose corn syrup or soy protein), it’s estimated that 60 to 70 percent of processed foods in grocery stores include at least one GE ingredient! Were you aware of this? How do you feel about the labeling issue in the US? How many people are GMO foods affecting?

One thought on “GMO Labeling – Agree or Disagree?

  1. I agree 100% I think it is a travesty that food companies can hide the fact that they use GMO’s. I think that citizens have a right to know what they are putting in their bodies, and if they choose to purchase/consume GMO’s then that is their choice, but for those of us who try to avoid GMO’s it is also our choice, and we have a right to know.
