Thank you for covering the anti-GMO rally (The Maui News, Sept. 19). The information provided, however, was one-sided with no reference to the very reason the rally was held.
While health reasons and soil contamination alone would be cause enough, what is most dangerous is the monopoly of a handful of giant corporations that have infiltrated every sector of our government to control the seed/food supply of the world.
While I applaud Elle Cochran, bills for labeling GMO products (in almost everything) are not the most effective means to stop the companies.
Citizen initiatives, such as the upcoming Prop 37 in California, where the people get to vote, would seem best. GMOs are irreversible. They do not degrade over time, they accumulate. I hope all who care about the future of food do their research.
