The American Association for the Advancement of Science says labeling genetically modified food products would be misleading
Slapping labels on genetically modified (GM) foods is a bad idea, according to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The science advocacy organization's executive board approved a statement on October 20th saying that requiring such labels, as a ballot measure in California seeks to do, could "mislead and falsely alarm consumers."
"Consuming foods containing ingredients from GM crops is no riskier than consuming the same foods containing ingredients from crop plants modified by conventional plant improvement techniques," the AAAS executive board wrote. "The World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the US National Academy of Sciences, the British Royal Society, and every other respected organization that has examined the evidence has come to the same conclusion."
In California, large food industry corporations have devoted more than $40 million to defeating Proposition 37, which would mandate such labeling in the state. Independent organic food companies have donated smaller amounts to the effort to get Prop 37, on which California voters will vote on November 6th, passed.
If GMO were so safe, why you dont allow links where health problems and environmental damage is done when transgenic seeds are planted in the soil? All my links here are removed before anyone can take a look... I hope this Nov 6, proposition 37 will change things for you, monsters
lunacy! If it were such a big deal, how come only California has it on the ballot. You got more crazy states with the pro-gay measure on the ballot!....lol. Come on people, have a clue. You have these organic groceries and other looney loons that are trying to advance their own agenda here. It is completely false and shameful.
