GMOs or genetically modified organisms were deemed so safe that labeling isn’t necessary in foods, according to a recently passed law. Labeling foods that contain GMOs would require a vast overhaul of the foods we already consume on a regular basis. Supporters of the recently passed anti-GMO labeling law realize that this shift in awareness may cause undue alarm among the public and a painful blow to the expenses of food manufacturers having to update their labels. Supporters deemed this the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act. Those who contested this act referred to their efforts as “Deny Americans the Right to Know” or DARK Act. The EPA recognizes that certain herbicides used to treat GMO crops can alter DNA. Foods harvested from these crops have measurable levels of this carcinogenic herbicide. We go to school to learn. We go to the doctor to stay healthy. What happens when the government decides that we can’t handle the decision to choose GMO or not?
