Letter to Iowa Farmer Today on GMO labeling

Dear Editor,

I see that the voting has gone over 75% in favor of mandatory labeling of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in IFT’s weekly poll. I have to wonder what has gotten into a once free and responsible people. What a pitiful country we have become where we act on orders from bureaucrats instead of thinking for ourselves.

But the most tragic thing is the nonsensical notion that we need to be forced to do something that benefits us. If there is such huge demand for non-GMO foods, a niche is provided for those producers that incentivizes non-GMO producers to label those foods themselves.

With the pervasiveness of GMOs today, one would have to assume any food not labeled non-GMO contains GMOs.

Philosopher Herbert Spencer said in 1891, “The ultimate effect of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.”

Love, Fritz Groszkruger
