    "There is controversy over GMOs, especially with regard to their use in producing food. The dispute involves buyers, biotechnology companies, governmental regulators, non-governmental organizations, and scientists. The key areas of controversy related to GMO food are whether GM food should be labeled, the role of government regulators, the effect of GM crops on health and the environment, the effect on pesticide resistance, the impact of GM crops for farmers, and the role of GM crops in feeding the world population. In 2014, sales of products which had been labeled as non-GMO grew 30 percent to $1.1 billion.[140]"

    Tell the public what they're eating.

    They have purchasing power and can decide to support, not support or be impartial to GM / GMO food.

    GM / GMO is certainly the next step in mankind's desire to control nature; for better or worse.

    I, for one am moving from a consumer (of food) to a producer moving to a community of like-minded individuals who see food as part of said community.

    You are what you eat.

    • And if we can feed a whole nation of starving Ethiopians by growing corn in sand via GM then that's fine by me.Ianbolton
