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.

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?
