    Would you still eat your favorite snack if it is labeled to contain GMO's?

    "produced with genetic engineering"  in the side of the box of Cheez-it crackers. Thanks to Vermont law to label all foods with GMO that would include: Cheerios, SpagettiO's, M&M’s, Skittles, Snickers, Twix, Dove, Combos and Uncle Ben’s, Famous Amos' Chocolate Chip Bite Size Cookies, Froot Loops, Special K, Pop-Tarts and Pringles.  “Produced with Genetic Engineering” means the product isn’t verified as non-GMO.

    Not if there remained an option to buy the "classic" version. smile
    I suspect the manufacturers know this which is why they are fighting to avoid having to list a GMO label on their products.
    Maybe if they cut the price of GMO products by 30-50% more people might be inclined to try them if only for the sake of saving money.

    Sure! It's well established that GMOs are not bad for you. BUT, I am still opposed to GMOs for many other reasons. Allowing a few multinational companies to control so much of our food supply is a terrible idea. Spraying foods with Glyphosate is a terrible idea because it is designed to be absorbed by the plants that we eat. Glyphosate use has already created weeds that resist it so they are promoting even more toxic herbicides: (2-4d), with GMOs developed to resist that chemical. Soon weeds will resist that too so eventually we will have weeds that can't be killed and corn saturated with toxins.
    On the other hand here in FL we need GM orange trees to save the industry from citrus greening. Developing stress resistant crops will be needed to feed a growing population.
    Global warming is already playing havoc with crops and climate change denial only helps the oil companies. We will need GMO crops to offset the damage we are doing to the environment.

      there is no conclusive evidence that eating genetically modified foods is directly harmful to human health. But that’s where the consensus stops. animal studies showing organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging
