Re: “Proposition 105: GMOs

Here is the other side of the GMO story, from the recent "Seeds of Doubt" conference in Broomfield, Colorado (on October 11th). I would encourage everyone to watch these films. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/seedsofdoubt

Re: “Proposition 105: GMOs

Vote YES on labeling--64 countries have this, even Russia, China and India. It's ridiculous to make any argument against. As consumers it is our right to know--PERIOD. No one should have the power to "decide" otherwise. The thing that is most shocking to me is that people do not truly know what a GMO IS--that these are organisms that would never be able to be produced naturally in nature (or by humankind's hand in the greenhouse or field), they are laboratory combinations of not only different species, but different phylum. These companies are producing "foods" that the human body has not evolved to ingest. These are foreign substances. Since their introduction we have seen all the problems predicted occur--genetic contamination in wild species, death of beneficial pollinators, the need for ever-increased doses of toxic pesticides, superweeds. Furthermore, we have seen a huge increase in certain afflictions. In our children today, known to many as “Generation Rx”:

One in 13 has a food allergy.
One in 68 has autism.
One in 10 suffers from asthma.

Hence, one in three children is afflicted by allergies, asthma, ADHD, or autism.

(This information came from a GMO conference last week, quoted from Robyn O'Brien, expert in this subject.)

I think it is irresponsible of The Independent to be wishy-washy on this one and lazy in its research: it is our right to have properly labeled food.
