When Vermont became the first state in the country to mandate the labeling for the use of Genetically Modified Organisms in food products in 2014, numerous companies vowed to sue to block the law. Now, many are beginning to label their products accordingly to comply with the law, which goes into effect July 1st.
Sincerely, I don’t see the problem with this, and please, don’t bring up the slippery slope argument. To the manufacturers, a couple of words on the package will not change the cost in any significant way (and they can even now market it as “better food” for anti-GMO advocates, as wrong as they may be). To informed people, is absolutely indifferent. To people that care about this, well, since it won’t cause any significant strain to the rest of society, good for them! How is this any different of labeling food as kosher or halal? All are labeling food based on personal beliefs lacking any scientific ground.
