WRONG Mike

You are wrong on just about every point you made Mike. First the poll was 93% want GMO labeling. Not banning of GMO, just labeled. You can see the poll results here by ABC: http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=97567&page=1#.UK1HMMXO3Cc

The reason the vote was NO, was because of the 46 million dollars spent by agri-business scaring uninformed voters by stretching the truth on certain issues and the policing of small business and being able to bring lawsuits for violators. This is NOT the GMO issue, it is more the way the proposition was written. Several recent studies have shown that GMO's cause tumors and sterility in rats. Not little tumors, massive and numerous tumors. Another study found the poison implanted into GMO to deter pests in fetuses of pregnant women. Excuse me, why is everyone not alarmed by all this?

It is also true that most countries Ban or require labeling of GMO's. I can't say every, but I can say every large country but us does. Europe doesn't even allow it to be grown or sold there. Personally, I WANT to know what is in the food I eat and feed my children and if it has been genetically modified, I want it right in front of me so I can put it back on the shelf!
