I am writing because I am concerned about the lack of competition in agricultural markets, and the fact that many food products are very unnecessarily going through genetic modification. We have evolved as the most intelligent beings on earth without ever eating modified foods, and now I fear we are heading in the exact opposite direction we should be, especially as a developed country with so many intelligent scientists and citizens who should know better!
I am MORE than concerned--I'm appalled--at the fact that foods are being genetically modified without any public consent, or knowledge for that matter! EVERY food, whether fruit, vegetable, grain, and any other product that's genetically modified should be required to have a label that says exactly that: this food/product IS genetically modified. I am disgusted learning about Monsanto and all the other large multinational corporations out there who do not have anyone to answer to, and who are putting our health at risk, and shockingly we are unknowingly at risk. I am fearful of our future corporations and the things they are doing right under our noses. I encourage everyone who wants to be healthy to eat locally grown organic produce.
