90 percent of the American public wants GE foods labeled


Which supermarket foods are genetically engineered? This is probably the most urgent question the public has about these novel foods. Opinion polls show that up to 90 percent of the American public wants GE foods labeled. But despite this overwhelming demand, almost no foods on U.S. grocery shelves reveal their secret, genetically engineered ingredients.

We’ve seen that our government, under pressure from the biotechnology industry, has not required the labeling of GE foods. And the biotech industry does not voluntarily identify them, fearing, probably correctly, that the majority of Americans would avoid GE foods if given a choice. As a result, the U.S. public has been deprived of its right to choose whether to buy and consume these engineered foods. However, this is not the case with most of our major trading partners around the globe who have instituted mandatory labeling of all GE foods and ingredients.

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are plant and meat products that have had their DNA altered and possibly mutated in some laboratory, and it's all coined as the evolution of science and biotechnology for agriculture in order to fool the masses into believing that it's for "our own good." They (biotech giants) even teach it in schools and at Disney World now, and they say it all without ever telling anyone what they're REALLY doing, and that is inserting the genes from other plants, animals, viruses and bacteria into food -- often in the form of pesticides that can't be washed off.
