Isn't it important to label GMO foods in light of recent studies linking GMO corn to cancer?


Russia has banned Monsanto GMO corn and many European nations are considering a ban in light of recent French studies that have shown alarming links to cancer. Do you think it's important that we label all food honestly as they are now going to do in California? Shouldn't the public have a right to be informed when they are eating foods that have been chemically altered and as such may pose a long-term health risk?

    I agree, the next question would be how to get people to care enough about anything to take charge and do something about it.

    I agree fitmom.- so many folk take things at face value, which is why we need the labels. Sadly the 'junk' of cereals is only shown in the small print, so folk need to get those specs out and read and then choose accordingly

    I totally agree, unfortunately the food lobbyists don't because they know many people would probably avoid these foods.

    studies here are bought and paid for. Look up the French study I mentioned it's quite illuminating. Studies in this country are a joke.

    The studies showing cancer links are valid so I disagree with you on that, but I do agree fully with you about Monsanto holding seeds hostage with patents. They'll do anything for money even if it means sacrificing health.
