For the past two decades, the number of genetically-modified crops has been steadily skyrocketing around the globe. Until 2015, when the number saw its first recorded drop. What’s going on?
Why I hate GMO labeling? Because it tells the consumer absolutely nothing. If a tomato is labeled “GMO”, it might mean “modified to resist pesticides”, in which case I would probably avoid it, or it might mean “modified to stay resist freezing”, in which case I would be willing to pay extra for it.
I oppose GMO labeling because to people who actually understand what GMO is (or can be), they provide no useful information, whereas scaring away people who do not understand it. It is a lose-lose.
