Fox in the henhouse

In reading the article about the labeling initiative, Right to Know Colorado ("Oh no, GMO," News, July 9), the one thing that stood out to me is this: Almost all of the "studies" done to evaluate the safety of GMOs have been done by the corporations that manufacture and market them. Big Pharma has been caught again and again, manipulating studies to their financial benefit.

Thirty years ago, a very small percentage of the population had "wheat" allergies. This has grown to epic proportions. Thirty years ago, wheat was as American as "apple pie." (Side note: Apple pie wasn't actually started in America, but I digress.) And we could all eat wheat without complications. This is not true in 2014.
