No, we have selectively bred crops for thousands of years and labeling just adds an unfounded stigma to the science

Yes, I trust the science of responsible food engineering but I don’t trust the motives of the food companies selling them

GMO's- Do some research! GMO's aren't typically bad. Insulin that diabetics inject themselves with, is a GMO. It's a genetically modified organism. Modifying organisms goes all the way back to Egyptian times. Tomatoes are genetically modified, Cherry tomatoes are what tomatoes used to be until people started modifying them. So tell that to everyone who thinks their tomatoes should be left alone... and then give them cherry tomatoes and see how they feel. It's ridiculous that people have such strong opinions without doing any research themselves. They ask doctors about vaccines or vegans about GMO's... how about you do research from both sides and actually look at the facts to base your opinion off of. Don't have an opinion based off of someone else's opinion.

Yes, consumers have a right to know what is in their food

Technically insulin isn't a GMO, it's a protein produced by a GMO.

it's too late. How long have we that are over 50 been exposed? the effects are already in process. So, I think the point is mute now

@58CWKS7from Texas  answered…2yrs

Frankenstein food should be outlawed. How many gov. Officials have been purchased by the Evil of Monsanto?

@58WCY6Wfrom California  answered…2yrs

The anti-GMO advocates are paranoid. Popular Mechanics magazine points out the about 70% or more of our processed foods are GMO's and have been for decades. There are so many thoroughly false rumors about GMOs, and people believe them. I lived on a farm and we grew crops with "engineered" seeds, and they grew very well with no ill effects on man or animal.

@8M94G3YProgressive from Michigan commented…2yrs

Food should be labeled with the specific modifications, it is normal for food to be modified and a generic "GMO" label just adds a stigma.

@592ZY9Zfrom Indiana  answered…2yrs

Pretty much all food produced today is genetically modified. We used to do it through selective breeding, now there are other ways of modifying our food. Oversight is obviously required for all food production, but as long as it does not present a public health danger I see no reason to single out one method of manipulation over another.

@57Z8HVBfrom California  answered…2yrs

yes, With Genetically Modifies Foods comes the ability to prevent a new plague from eliminating that food.

@95VKZCQ from California answered…17hrs

i think GMOs would be unnecessary if we stopped regulating the growing of crops and natural foods

@95VJSZF from Maryland answered…18hrs

Yes, but only if there is scientific evidence of harm to human health. Regardless, no one should be allowed to patent foods, plants, or animals

@95TG7SM from Missouri answered…2 days

Yes consumers have a right to know what's in their food and should not be allowed to patent foods.

@95SM244 from Texas answered…2 days

No, but it’s okay if it is. GMOs can end world hunger if cultivated well enough, and GMOs are stigmatized way too much when they dont really do anything.

@95SKSLT from Texas answered…2 days

Similar to the last question I don't really know or care much about the issue but people deserve to know what they are eating and what their food contains.

@95RWNKCTranshumanist from Idaho answered…3 days

No, instead all food should provide methods to discover the source of the product to ensure health

@95RQ8Q8Socialist from Montana answered…3 days

I literally do not care. It's not a big deal if companies have to disclose GMO use, but there is zero proof that GMOs have any negative effects.

Yes, I trust the science of responsible food engineering but I don’t trust the motives of the food companies selling them. Regardless, producers should not be allowed to patent foods

@95R6794 from Massachusetts answered…3 days

The general government doesn't have the constitutional authority to impose such a requirement. Individual states however may.

@95QYTG6Women’s Equality from Illinois answered…3 days

almost everything we eat now has some form of GMO in it so it would be pointless to keep labeling things that are in everything

@95QX3WG from Indiana answered…3 days

Combination of three: (Ultimately yes)
Yes, consumers have a right to know what is in their food
Yes, I trust the science of responsible food engineering but I don’t trust the motives of the food companies selling them
However, we have selectively bred crops for thousands of years and labeling just adds an unfounded stigma to the science

@95QNFV3 from Wisconsin answered…3 days

No, they should just have to mark nonGMO because so many food are GMO

@95QN33V from Texas answered…3 days

It shouldn't be a requirement to add them since the food science is safe, but it would be nice to know if it was or wasn't

Producers should label most if not ALL, potentially harmful ingredients/chemicals in foods and liquids like the European Union does. Examples would be Red 40, Yellow 5 and 6 etc.

@95NCJ9Y from Texas answered…5 days

While I am a strong believer that GMO's are not always harmful and have a bad reputation for the lack in education of them, I think they should be labeled.

@95N96VV from Georgia answered…5 days

The definition of GMO's would have to be altered in this situation, almost every product sold in stores has been modified over thousands of years
