I don't see the problem with full GMO disclosure on consumer products. I'd like to see a ratings system for packaging as well.
Nor do I see why GMOs should be exempt from disclosure or be allowed to fly under the radar just because giant destructive multinationals desire make our food into evolutionary wildcards/proprietary in unprecedented & potentially harmful ways. Perhaps there are helpful instances as well, but Monsanto's disgusting abuse of small farmers really makes one withhold benefit of the doubt. And who knew that more than half the products in your pantry are already compromised. I think the real more truthful argument biotech is trying to make is that the horse is already out of the barn.
It's your Brave New World- we're just forced to live in it. I am not sure that the rise in immunological disease like the onset of Rheumatoid Arthritis & other conditions aren't exacerbated by a decline in quality & integrity of our foodstuffs.
