Eating food that is engineered to kill the bugs that try to eat it has never sounded like a good idea!

Noted. It helps not to buy products with the most common genetically modified product especially corn and soy beans AND WRITE TO THE COMPANIES that make these to let them know that you are not buying their products over concern that their products may contain genetically modified food crops.

Never under estimate the power of the public to change things quickly. The public outcry over "pink slime" in ground beef shows what can happen when the public is given enough information about something in their food.

Thanks for helping to spread the word!

Got Land? Grow Your Own Non-GMO organic food.

A fascinatingly simple idea anyone could learn, and it causes no harm.

Noted. I want to share but Care2 has so many tech issues I am lucky to be here at all.

Finally, an article to actually list all the problems with GE and GMO foods. I don't understand those who honestly can't understand why we don't all just roll over and accept these foods. Personally, I want to know what's in any packaged food I buy, so why wouldn't I want to know what's in GE foods? Thanks for the article, Ellyn.

ye, i also want to know what's in packaged food - if gmo's are so 'nobel' why not label them...

This is the reason why my children only eat organic food.

Agree with Joanne M. I have just sent my first postcard directly to a food manufacturer of an item that I would like to eat, but won't. They advertise it as "natural", but with mostly corn and soybean oil, it has an 85%+ chance of being GMO. I'm going to contact many more companies to ask that they offer an organic version for people like me who don't want to eat GMO tainted food. Organic popcorn is inexpensive to pop up, and I'd rather eat that any day than a GMO snack.

I read an article stating that organic foodies are "anti social"! Guess that could be true as I also don't patronize many restaurants anymore, just the few that serve organic, and local food. I'd rather give them my money, as HEALTH IS WEALTH!

Noted, Thank you Ellyn.

i hate the thought of genetically engineered food. Just the label sounds wrong to me. Vegetables grow in the earth they are meant to be natural not messed around with.

many govt. agencies are investing in G.M crops, i don't want to think about the horrible results.

Hopefully the USDA, FDA, Congress and others with decision-making authority will base their decisions on such science now

I have a BIG problem with a report that is written by only TWO(2) Genetic Engineers, who say they, "BELIEVE there are GOOD scientific reasons to be WARY", of GM foods, note that they do not say that there is PROOF and WARY is a long way from 'alarmed' or 'afraid of'. The third 'author', Claire Robinson, is not a scientist, her masters is in philosophy, she is the research director of Earth Open Source who has a list of Anti-GMO publications prior to this collaboration. So you have two scientists that 'believe' one should be 'wary' and a research editor with an agenda.
Sorry, Lucie G., the label is designed to 'sound wrong' and unless every plant or animal that you eat is from some primeval forest every thing eaten by you, I and every one else has been genetically modified by thousands of years of careful genetic manipulation even though it was done out side of a laboratory. One GMO that springs to mind is the newer 'Submergence tolerant rice', which was designed through tech GMO and then that was duplicated through the old fashioned gross breeding, because they knew it would not sell if GMO but would if gmo'd. Personally I am still undicided on GMO as there are no hard fact based definative studies, that have been replicated, that offer proof of danger.
