Hershey’s is pulling or labeling its candy with GMOs. Good for them. Whether there is a danger from such ingredients is still in question. What is not in question is whether the government should require labels on food. Of course not. There are already laws against fraud that cover that and if consumers want GMO free food then they can pay for the products voluntarily labelled as such. They are still free to do so. If the GMO free food costs more to grow, that cost can be passed on to consumers. If they feel the cost is too high for recklessly bred foods, they can buy food that has a more controlled breeding regimen (GMO).
Voluntary action is more efficient than government guided markets. Let’s not force, already cash strapped consumers to pay more for food that hasn’t been proven to be less harmful than food directed by market forces.
If you can point out damage done by GMOs, let me know. I’m always open to new information.
