QIf you are claiming that GMOs are supposedly safe than why won't you label food? What are you hiding?

If you are claiming that GMOs are supposedly safe than why won't you label food? What are you hiding?

AExpert Answer

That's an excellent question, and we are happy to provide a response.

 

First, we actually just posted some information on labeling and why products from GMOs are not currently labeled.

 

From the post: "Questions about labeling are great questions. We are often accused of being against labeling. We are not. We want consumers to know about GMOs and support the right of consumers to choose food that is healthy and nutritious. What we cannot support is a label that conveys to consumers that foods made from the farmers’ crops grown with our seeds are less safe than, less nutritious than or somehow different from conventional or organic food. We believe a government requirement to label GM food would do just this. Hundreds of independent studies have confirmed the safety of GMOs, and regulatory authorities around the world agree.”

 

When it comes to hiding, it's actually quite the opposite. There's no need to label a product when there's nothing to hide or define as different. In other words, no scientific justification to provide a label for GMOs."

Growers/Packers can use the number "9" prefix to this 4-digit numeric code to... Read More

The simple answer is that 20+ years of composition assessments of GMO crops have demonstrated that crop composition is not appreciably affected by the GM process (1). In addition, data collected through that time have indicated that general factors such as the growth environment can contribute to notable variation in component levels (2). Plant agglutinins (or lectins) and amylase inhibitors are examples of anti-nutritional compounds that may be present in crops. The relevance of such a... Read More
