1. Plants have been gross breeding without human help. 2. After the amount of chemicals we put in our system, I can see why the labeling would be an issue. 3. W do have GMO corn that has to be processed for it to be edible. 4. We don't know what is being spliced with or what the process of GMO is?
I personally think the thing on GMO labeling is a bit ridiculous. People are going on the idea that GMO food is some kind of scientific abomination when we have been eating it for years. Not to mention, sources I've found say not only do GMO foods tend to be more nutritious and productive, but specifically organic foods have been known to fair worse. Not to mention, many vegetables undergo SELECTIVE BREEDING, not necessarily even actual genetic implantation. And even if it does get DNA from different organisms, it's just DNA. Transplanting one set of genes to another organism is hardly any different from computer codes. Not to mention, I don't understand what the significance of the vegetable being "pure" considering that they have been bred to become more suitable for human consumption too, even long before GMOs were an issue (corn is another interesting example). Then again, I could have voted yes on 37 so I could only pick GMO food too c:
I can see both sides of the arguement, but to be honest I really don't mind things the way they are now.
I really don't want to have to read a whole library every time I go shopping; I already know what just about everything in the grocery store is modified and it's my choice as a customer to buy it and consume it or not.
There are plenty of choices out there already for people, like me, who chose not to eat modified foods and I don't mind having to shop around for it.
"Apples, Pears, Wheat, virtually each one has been at one point or another in human history cross-bred, selectively bred, in such ways that are wholly "Unnatural" since they don't occur in nature at all."
