EVERY OTHER NATION bans or requires labeling of GMO ingredients. I doubt that very much.
One quote has the 'Yes for Prop 37' saying 90% of Americans want GMO labeling. Wow, that is quite the favorable percentage. I highly question that number. If that many, why did Prop 37 fail. And don't use the excuse of big business spreading false information. If 90% say they want it, Prop 37 should have passed with a breeze.
Hey Jesse, because GMO is not labeled means that people don't know what it is? They can't do thier research without it on the label. What makes you think they will if it is on the label? I guess the pro Prop 37 group did not do a very good job in educating those in California.
As for ice cream 'having' to put nutrition labeling on thier container cause it informs us of how bad it is? In case you have not noticed, all food packages display nutrition panels and have since 1993. Ice cream is not bad for you, unless you decide to eat a whole carton in one sitting.
I read one article that stated that GMO will no doubt someday be added to labeling. I agree, someday it will. Whether I feel it needs to be is another matter.
