Geneticaly Modified Organisms

 It is of paramount importance that all genetically modified food and other modified consumer products be clearly labeled. The public deserves to know and to have a choice.

As we move forward into this brave new world we need transparency and rigorous testing. We must hold the multi-nationals to a strict standard and write laws and regulations that reflect the fundamental fact that corporations are here to serve people; people are not the servants, property, or guinea pigs of the corporations.

With that said, I am not anti-science or even against the use of GMOs. I am for fairness and transparency.

"For the first time in international law, there is an implicit recognition that GMOs are inherently different from naturally occurring organisms, and carry special risks and hazards, hence the need to have a legally binding international instrument"
