Citizens and legislators should be proud that Connecticut is the first state to pass a law requiring the labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms, known as GMOs. Polls consistently show that 90 percent of Americans want GMOs to be labeled, and we are not alone. Sixty-two countries require GMO labeling.
Those who oppose GMO labeling include large chemical corporations that sell increasing amounts of herbicides, pesticides and genetically modified plants and animals. There is a debate raging in the scientific community as to whether GMOs — which have only existed for 20 years — are adequately tested to protect health and safety.
