Robyn O’Brien was on the CBS nightly news with Katie Couric recently to talk about genetically modified organisms in our food supply. Most of us have either never heard of GMOs or just don’t understand them. You can click this link to read the news article, or this link to play the video.
We take for granted that the FDA is keeping us safe. They claim that foods containing GMOs are safe, but that leads me to ask- Why are GMOs NOT required to be listed on the labels?
It is our right as U.S. citizens to a freedom of choice, but our freedom in essence is taken away when we are not given all information in regards to a particular situation. It is as if the government is hiding something. It is said in the video that the food manufacturers are afraid that if people see the words “genetically modified” on food labels, then they will not purchase the product. If these foods are safe, why not back up the claim with real information- proof derivied from real studies- for instance.
Most people have never heard of GMOs. I would love to hear your opinions on the subject. You can leave a comment and remain annonymous.
