Citizens deserve to know what they are eating

The point is not whether genetically modified organism food is safe or not. That will be discovered in the long run.

The point is that we as citizens of the world have a right to know what we are eating. And to decide whether we, as individuals, want to eat GMO foods.

At this point, we have no choice because, as usual, the powers that be caved to the large, rich companies that lobby and give them money.

So, now it is time to turn back the mistake that was done and treat the citizens with the respect they deserve – to allow them to know what they are eating.

Japan and South Korea have already banned import of our wheat products. How come they are smart enough to know better and we are not?
