The brewing debate over genetically modified crops continues to evolve.
The latest: a front page story in The New York Time today talked about the grassroots push to label foods that contain genetically modified organisms — think corn flakes and other cereals. Despite assurances to the contrary, many Americans remain skeptical and are unconvinced. They want genetically modified crops to be labeled, if not eliminated.
Closer to home, California probably will vote this year on GMO labeling. Oregon tried a decade ago, but it didn’t pass. Likewise, fights over genetically modified beets and alfalfa have been fought in Oregon, with courts eventually allowing both.
