GM foods have been in the news a lot lately due to the global protests against them and Monsanto this past weekend. No one can conclusively say whether they are safe or not and most articles are biased one way or the other – so it’s hard to know the real truth.
In my opinion, GMO ingredients should be labeled. We have sugar-free, gluten-free, lactose-free, preservative-free, high-fructose corn syrup-free. Why not GMO-free? GMO labelling is also a means to avoid glyphosate – a herbicide used in GMO farming that in some studies has been reported to be carcinogenic but the overall conclusions are inconclusive. Concerned consumers have a right to know what is in their food as it looks like this debate will continue for some time.
