Mandatory labeling of genetically modified foods: Is labeling of GM foods important to consumer choice?

  • We should label GMO foods

    We should absolutely label GMO foods. It makes no sense that we would not provide a label so that consumers know what they are putting into their body. It was shocking when a bill designed to do this was denied in California. As consumers, we have a right to know what we are eating.

  • Yes it is.

    Mandatory labeling of GMFs (Genetically Modified Foods) is important to the customers. In order for a consumer to make an informed choice, they need to have all of the facts. Some people do not want to eat genetically modified foods, so having the labels on them will make it easier for them.

  • Labeling GM foods is important

    Labeling of genetically modified foods is important to consumer choice. This is because of the fact that consumers need to be able to know as much information about the products in which they buy as possible. Many people would not buy foods if they knew that they were genetically modified. Knowledge is power.

  • Yes should be freedom to choose

    Americans should have the freedom to choose the foods they eat. If there are people who don't want genetically modified foods then those people have a right to know what foods are what and make the choise. Labeling the foods properly in the store is the best way to give everyone a choice.

  • Genetically Modified Food Labels Important

    Without a doubt, genetically modified food labels are important for consumers. Consumers need this information and more in order to make an informed decision about what they eat. Too many people don't know about GMOs, and more education is needed to ensure that people know what they're putting on their plates.

  • Yes, Mandatory labeling of GM foods is important to consumer choice.

    Mandatory labeling of genetically modified foods is quite important to consumer choice, simply because they have a negative view on genetically modified foods.

    In essence, making it mandatory to label a GM food would indeed cause a noticeable shift in the purchase volume of which consumers make on their overall foods in general.

    Naturally they'd pick the non GM, barring the price was dropped, but no label means there wouldn't be a price shift in the GM foods.

  • People deserve to know what they consume

    GMOs are a relatively new advancement in food products and as a result, we do not fully understand how they may affect the human body. For this reason, the consumer should at the very least be aware that they are purchasing a product that has been genetically modified so they can make a better decision about whether they want to buy it or not.
