The big-government/big-corporate criminal complex knows what is best for you.

Did they mention the ultimate “feature”? Seedless product.

Farmers then “must” go back to the corporation to get seed.

That’s a pretty good argument, but I still haven’t seen any serious evidence that genetically-modified food is any different from Gregor Mendel’s experiments.

It’s amazing, but in previous threads on this subject some posters actually tried to represent a GMO labeling requirement as an example of big government out-of-control. As if a corporation has a greater right to refuse to fully label their product than hundreds of millions of consumers have to know what they’re buying and ingesting into their bodies.

If GMOs are so good, why don't the food companies want them listed on food labels?

Is it perhaps because, like "alar", "pink slime", and "DDT", the term has been demagogued into non-desirability in spite of, or perhaps because of its lack of harm and even (gasp!) possible benefit?

No, I don't work for Monsanto, and I don't seek out "GMO" foods. On the other hand, I don't go out of my way to avoid them. They may kill me-- but for thousands of years people have died after lifetimes of "organic", and I don't see myself escaping their fate.

And why would anyone trust the judgment of “The People” of California?

NaturalNews could use some honest labeling too.

We have "genetically modified" our foodstuff since the beginning of humanity. Until the middle of this century, it was a relatively slow process accomplished by cross pollination and selective breeding. Farmers would plant seeds from plants that produced well or were disease resistant. They would breed animals that fattened quickly, tasted better, and didn't get sick. Everything else got eaten or castrated.

What is done in the lab today is really no different. We get better food that grows in a wider variety of environments and is more profitable for the producer.

Unless one subscribes to the OWS style belief that Monsanto is the personification of a big, evil, capitalist corporation making profit at the worlds expense, I really don't see a problem.

Well just my personal belief is this. GOD knows better than man his creation and the food he provides and created. I just notice the more something is altered for purposes such as shelf life, shipping, etc the more and more flavor it looses.

I live two counties over from Tomato Capitol or Grainger County, Tennessee. At first they were good. Then the alternations began. Now even when they should be fresh you can almost use them for a baseball and they have all the juiciness of a cotton ball. That was just one of many things that simply no longer taste as good as they once did. Bread is another thing. It all taste like it's stale. I'm almost 55 and I remember bakery fresh bread in stores. I can remember Bologna that did not cause extreme gastro calamity as today's product which causes one to bend over doubled in pain 10 minutes after ingestion.
