I’m a former political and environmental blogger with a lengthy history of consumer advocacy in Canada. I find it shocking that 33% of those who responded to this poll feel they lack information to form an opinion.
Sheesh this isn’t rocket science. What more information is needed?
It’s a cut and dried no brainer. The gov’t is either acting to in the best interest of the population to protect and preserve human health or they aren’t.
Whether or not one approves of GMO (genetically modified organisms) is irrelevant. All items sold as food ought to be labeled clearly labeled and the labels must reveal exactly what the contents are. If and when that isn’t happening then the food industry is not behaving responsibly and the gov’t is not doing its job which is to insure that items marketed as foods are properly labeled with labels that state all the contents.
I completely agree with you!! If you have time, please read the latest GMO study I’ve posted. This is the first long term (2 year) animal feeding study using GMO maize and Round-Up herbicide. The results are very concerning. Regulations in the US only require 90 day animal feeding trials. Tumor growth began at around 4-5 months…
I was not sure what a GMO was until I looked it up. How about an article to go with this poll about GMOs?
I’m so sorry to assume my readers knew the term, GMO. My previous post provided info on the latest study of GMO corn and toxicity in rats…which this post gives a bit more information, but not the basics, as you have requested. When I am inspired, I may just do so!! Thank you for the excellent feedback!
