Connecticut Makes History as First State to Pass GE Food Labeling Law
This week, Connecticut won the honor of becoming the first state to pass a law requiring genetically-engineered foods to be labeled.
Health effects are not my primary concern with GM food, as science has yet to clearly identify the risks of consuming it. The reason I oppose it is because companies like Monsanto, Syngenta, and Nestlé are lobbying to control our food supplies using proprietary GM products, and they have succeeded in part thus far because of crony capitalism. So thank you, Connecticut, for declaring the rights we all deserve as educated consumers.
