The government has unilaterally decided that if a food is made from a genetically modified organism (GMO), it doesn’t need to be labeled as such because it’s ‘safe’. The purpose of GMO is to modify an organism such that it doesn’t require as much insecticide or to make it brown less after preparing it. Some people notice that GMO foods grow faster and stay fresher longer. At the end of the day, transparency when it comes to the government knowing what people are doing is expected. Why can’t people expect the same from the food they put into their bodies? The government says it’s OK. End of issue. Look at it this way – if it does cause long-term adverse health effects, now we have government subsidized healthcare. I kid the President. We can’t handle the truth.
