That's why the food industry doesn't want labels. They want to determine what we eat.
I can't believe this statement is still being used... "Despite broad scientific consensus that GMOs are safe to consume". That's like saying... " Chemical compounds aren't toxic."
Every GMO is new. So a broad sweeping statement like that is just plain misleading, to say the least.
Not to mention, many of the concerns aren't about the GMO itself, but about the extensive use of chemicals associated with growing them, and the effect GMO genes might have on the environment.
Whatever a consumer's concern, the health issues related to consuming the GMO itself, or the use of chemicals etc., they should have the right to know and choose accordingly.

Like that statement about GMOs being safe. It's so stupid.
You may as well say.... Dogs are friendly.... Restaurant food is healthy... Chemicals are drinkable... Used car salesmen are honest. It's an inappropriate blanket statement. Yet people suck it up as being a scientific truism.
They're not thinking the statement through. image

I think awareness is spreading among people with intelligence and common sense.
Some will not know until there are commercials like their about tobacco. They are very ignorant, lazy and gullible to propaganda.
