Monsanto, et al. are afraid that if government requires or allows labeling,
consumers will choose not to buy GMO food. They don't want to combat that
possible choice with education and pricing. In effect, corporations are
battling to take away consumer choices. Who does that sound like?
Before you all go off on the "evils" of GMO crops, you should look to
see some of the benefits of GMOs.Thanks to GMOs diabetics are able
to get insulin for a low cost.There are many other medications that
are derived from GMOs.There are many people that would be considered
to be a GMO because they have undergond gene therapy to correct genetic diseases
that they were born with.GMOs are in cotton, and result in cheaper
cotton.GMOs are also being used to produce synthetic oil and other
chemicals.Some GMOs are just fine and have no effect on anybody, and
some are beneficial. What we need is a better understanding of what the GMO
does when eaten and any differences in how it is digested and processed.
RedShirtCalTechPasedena, CASo then -- Answe the original
question RedShirt, and stay on topic...If GMO foods are so
good, and safe, and wonderful -- why do their manufacturers insist in
staying "secret", hidden, undisclosed -- i.e., secret combinations?WIf there is no problems at all, Why NOT allow them to be labeled
and disclosed to the public?If something like that really and truely
WAS so superior a product, don't you think people would want to know
that as well?Who's side of TRUTH and Righteousnes are you going
to take?Like GWBush sold you all on his "Patriot Act", If you are doing nothing wrong, and have absolutely nothing to hide, what do you have to be worried about?
Pretty, cool and eye catching packages. I don't think I'd buy any
thing once I saw how much I get after I opened something.
airnaut - Rice can be grown from GM seeds, although corn cannot.
