article imageOregon set to ban GM salmon and mandate GMO labeling

By Owen Weldon     Apr 1, 2013 in Food
People all across the United States are demanding that foods are properly identified, and the state of Oregon is no exception
According to NaturalNews, recently a trio of legislative bills have recently been introduced, which are aimed at making all genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) to be labeled properly. The bills would also prohibit the import and sale of GM salmon, which was the very first transgenic animal that was preliminarily approved by the FDA for human consumption.
According to Examiner, supporters of the bills say that more than 80 percent of food in grocery stores across America contain genetically-modified ingredients, but nobody would know due to nothing being mentioned about it on the product. The opposition claims that local economies would suffer financially if GMO foods were labeled, and put a stigma on products that they say are safe.
According to DenveriJournal, both proponents and opponents of GMOs say they want more facts.
As of now, there is no solid evidence that GMO foods are bad for people, according to proponents. Meanwhile, opponents say that there is no solid evidence that GMO foods are safe for humans.
