I bet they also don't have a problem with women having contraceptives. I liked touring their ice-cream factory and grounds. They have a graveyard for the ice-cream flavors that are sold no more....lol

THERE IS WAY MORE WORK TO DO ON THIS.

So many people still do not know about gmo labelling, gmo banning.
93% of the people who do know would like the labelling

“GE labeling laws have been gaining widespread support across the country in the last two years,” said Violet Batcha, communications and social media manager for Just Label It. “The pressure is on the federal government to do what 93 percent of Americans want and label GE foods.”-- is they way this reads.

We definitely need to know. Food labeling is important. Now I just need to get me a magnifier to read it all...been procrastinating.

I'm glad he's in favor of GMO labeling. In the meantime, unless otherwise labeled: at least 90% of American corn and soy products are GMO. This includes corn syrup and soy lecithin, among other things..
