Read the label…
Pro-GM interests in the US are spending millions in their bid to fight the mandatory labelling of genetically modified food. What do they have to hide and, if they win, what are the implications?
Most of us want to know what we are eating and where our food comes from and the easiest way of finding out is by reading the label. But what if certain information is purposely left off – whether a particular food is genetically modified, for example? That’s what GM giant, Monsanto, and other GM food manufactures are fighting to achieve right now in the US.
Regardless of whether food containing GMOs are any more or less harmful for people to eat than anything else on the supermarket shelves, shouldn’t it be within a consumer’s rights to make up their own mind, to make a choice between foods that are genetically modified and those that are not? Or will we simply never know?
Are we really at the end of the road to recovery from the banking crisis? How much has it cost us all so far? Has anything changed? Could there be another crash? And what can be done about it anyway? The scandals and bonuses just keep on coming, from zombie banks to shadow banks. This Big Story looks at where it all came from and why, eight years on from the banking meltdown, so little real change has been achieved. Acting on some quite simple but fundamental home truths about finance would make a big difference.
