Vermont is poised to become the first state to require labels on genetically modified food. Yes!
Supporters of GMO say that there is no harm from GMO. Really! They precisely know the long term impact of their creation? Hmm…
In the 1990s, an engineered soybean made people with Brazil nut allergies have allergic reactions because they didn’t realize the bean’s genetic material included a gene from the Brazil nut.
I am sure the GMO companies are lying awake thinking “how will my meddling of genes have an impact on the environment or strengthening of weeds and insects that may evolve to beat the genetic engineering”.
I am sure they put the people health concern before their profits.
Petitions have shown up on Change.org asking for companies to get rid of GMOs. I say, support them.
If you are a strong GMO proponent, I have a simple request …
“If you are not worried about GMO and feel that your product is superior to nature made ones,
then show it. Feel proud and display the label on all your products stating MADE WITH GMO crop.”
We like transparency on what we are putting into our body.
