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

@97S564H from Illinois agreed…3mos

I personally don't care if my food does or does not contain GMOs. 'GMO' is very hard to define anyway, since humans have been domesticating crops for millennia. However, I see no real harm in requiring that they be labeled. If it makes some people happy, and does no harm to anyone else, I don't see why not.

@ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...7yrs

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

@ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...7yrs

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

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

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.

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

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.

@57Z8HVBfrom California  answered…2yrs

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

@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.

Yes. For those who are more interested in learning what their eating. Take the calorie label; it's the same principle.

@98WJW9DIndependent from Tennessee answered…3 days

No-If people want to buy non-GMO food, producers will label their foods anyway.

@98WGJ9P from Indiana answered…3 days

Yes I trust science of responsible food engineering but I don’t trust movies of food companies trying to sell them. Also consumers have the right to know what’s in their food.

@98W63FV from Iowa answered…4 days

They Actually already do, but the way it is done needs to be pushed out to more people.

@98W4S7G from North Carolina answered…4 days

gmo's are harmless parts of the selective plant growing process, however, food should be labeled correctly for consumers

@98W2GDP from Texas answered…4 days

@98W24LZ from California answered…4 days

No, because if we label GMOs literally nobody would buy them and it would cause food to go to waste. And we are already having food issues as it is.

it should be added for those who may be allergic to the ingredients added to the food in order to avoid an allergic reaction.

@98VKDTKWomen’s Equality from Washington answered…5 days

this has nothing to do with me so why should I have an opinion on something like this.

@98TTFLB from Ohio answered…6 days

No, If this was true almost all food eaten today would have to be labeled due to the current definition of GMO foods.

@98TRZ9H from New Jersey answered…6 days

Yes, just to be safe that if anyone is either allergic, does not eat GMO foods, or just doesn't trust it knows.

@98TBL2P from Washington answered…1wk

stop gmos. they arent native they arent healthy. they are filthy man made chemicals. eat natural. take care of earth and she WILL take care of us

@98SZSTR from Georgia answered…1wk

Yes because consumers have a right to know, but with more education on the science and what it actually entails.

@98SZPYD from North Carolina answered…1wk

Yes, but with additional information regarding the role of GMOs in the modern food world as to counteract stigma.

@98SS3WZ from South Carolina answered…1wk

No and they should not be able to patent genetic sequences or add unwanted technology into our food either. Also there needs to be a clear warning label explaining what harm gmo does. Also if they are using water cremation on the crops as well

@98SRLM5 from New York answered…1wk

Yes, but educate the public about GMO’s and why they are beneficial and not evil

@98SGLL3 from North Carolina answered…1wk

@98S85FM from New York answered…1wk
