    • On the plus side,:
      "Barack Obama's administration should follow through on a promise the president made when he was campaigning for office and require labeling of genetically modified foods."

      Politicians ALWAYS fulfill campaign "promises", right???

      From Mother Jones:
      "Back in 2007, a presidential candidate named Barack Obama declared that foods that include ingredients from genetically modified crops should be labeled. As president, he vowed, he would strive to "let folks know when their food is genetically modified, because Americans have a right to know what they're buying." "

      "As president, Obama has been silent on the issue, as has his FDA, which oversees food labeling. Meanwhile, Obama's USDA—which oversees farming practices—has been greenlighting GMO crops left and right, even while acknowledging that they generate herbicide-resistant weeds and other troubles."

      So much for fulfilling a campaign promise LOL.
      Sorry to make a "political" post, but politics are relevant to the subject.
      Check out the recent Rolling Stone (with Farrell on the cover) story by Bill McKibben "Obama and Climate Chage: The Real Story" Starts with "The president has said the right things about climate change – and has taken some positive steps. But we're drilling for more oil and digging up more carbon than ever."
      I've become very disenfranchised with our government.
