Just throwing this out there, as I know that there have already been multiple comments against some of the senators who voted against this, Rand Paul
being one of them, we should not so easily jump to conclusions here. I have not read the bill or anything, and I might if I have time today (certainly
I will if I form a complete opinion on it)...
But here is what I am thinking. If someone would suggest that we should put a label on everything that has gmos, ok maybe our emotions would make us
say "let's do it!" So let's take it down a notch and say we force every food that has gluten in it to put a label on it notifying its consumers
there is gluten in it... well I am sure there is apprehension on that one... Ok how about this, let's put a label on every food that was handled in a
factory where one of the worker's last name was 'Smith'. Then what? No one would want of course!! Truth is, should we really be forcing companies
to do anything, ridiculous or not? No! We should be preventing laws being made to regulate business in ways that can't easily be remedied with
education. I do not need to know if a company uses GMO's in their food, I need to be able to read and be aware of the products I as a consumer are
purchasing. The foods that don't use GMOs already have labels that lets you know that, 9 times out of 10!
Be a smart consumer, don't leave it up to the FDA to make labels.
