Hello, unfortunately, you're wrong. For GMO's to be tested and 'considered safe' they would have to be tested for longer than GMOs have even been popularly around. Despite what corporate lies may tell you, the full range of effects on humans, let alone the planet we all live in, are unknown. What pisses alot of us off, is that the food industry has tricked humans (mostly Americans) into not only being guinea pigs, but also paying to do so. In regards to GMOs tasting better, I've never heard...

In regards to GMOs tasting better, I've never heard something I disagreed with more. I was raised on GMO food, but now I live in CA, and having a plethora of Organic, NON-gmo food around, I'll tell you this: It tastes better, it makes you feel better, it's better. In regards to 'rotting,' that's a flaw with the present food distribution model.

Read this website and decide who you believe, the powerful corrupt corporation like Monsanto, DOW, or DuPont, or the people who are doing the REAL scientific research, not the research that Monsanto and friends pays to have to have done. http://www.organicconsumers.org/monsanto

I have researched this until, I ran out of energy, most scientist do not buy into the harmfu ladditives of such food, or the need to label as such. I refuse to buy into their inability to ease the concerns of the American people or others across the pond. I believe the best way to get them to submit is to stop buying these foods and grow your own, or buy from local farmer...Let the corporations feel the pain, as the dollars slip into the abyss! TW..

This bill was about the freedom to make choices... We will all have to become much more vigilant and make choices to eat foods that we create our self from farmers markets and organics... Perhaps it is time for a conscious boycott..We can say no to GMO's with our shopping choices.....Ruth Gould-Goodman.

Well I've already said NO to GMO's with my shopping choices, but it would be impossible to keep buying only organic like I do, if GMO's are allowed to continue, for they spread and corrupt all organic foods...yes destroy them. So GMO's must be outlawed and forbidden 100% if not more,

Just watched "Genetic Roulette", they say it would only take 5% of us to boycott GMO's for the food industry to start listening! It is all about their bottom line.
