As someone already mentioned....if these GMO products are so wonderful....they would not mind at all to label them. That alone tells me this Free Trade Communist Globalist fluff piece is BS

GMO worshipers are as bad as the Global Warming NutJobs

I don’t care if they label them, we label everything else, I’m just saying that it’ll be slim pickings to find something that doesn’t have a derivative of a GMO product.

The technology has developed so fast that they are even modifying minor crops. Honey, you know that bees get pollen from GMO crops. Meat, cattle are fed GMO crops. Sugars from cane, beets and corn all GMO.

The technology saves farmers money and the yields are over the top. The reason we aren’t going crazy about a shortage of corn because of the drought is because so many acres were GMO and even in the drought they yielded well.

Back to Roundup Ready type seeds, these are not GMOs they are bred not modified. Glyposphate is a salt and it disrupts plant growth. There has been extensively tested and it has shown little to no toxiciy to humans.

Yep. Monsanto and crew have been fighting tooth and nail to try to stop GMO-free foods from being labeled as such:
