Who Wants GMOs?
Back in our own country, Monsanto, which has been pushing GMOs in food, has been blocked . from selling genetically modified soybeans for at least another year This gives us time to catch up with some of the "less developed" countries that are years ahead of us in food safety. Look for a bill from Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, who is trying to push through legislation requiring GMOs to be listed on labels.
Are GMO foods dangerous? We don't know. And many people would rather err on the side of caution. Personally, I don't think it's smart to try to improve on Mother Nature. I do think we should know what we're eating and have a choice in buying organics over non-organics or GMOs.
