There are numerous disputes in favour of compulsory labelling of genetically altered life forms.  Nevertheless, corporate lobbyists have been notably successful in stopping any GMO labelling laws from being passed into law.

The public is of course in favour of the concept, but politicians are merely on board until voting polls close, after which point they return to the corporate ideals, stopping people from ever knowing the facts about what’s in their food.

In the West, the likelihood of such laws ever being passed are extremely improbable and, GMO foods will never be labelled.

At least 21 nations and, the European Union have set up some mandatory labelling, but food manufacturing in the EU and the US are two contrasting monsters.  The US Food and Drug Administration currently necessitate labelling of GMO foods if the food has a remarkably different nutritional quality.

If a recently developed food incorporates an allergen that consumers would not anticipate being present (i.e.| a peanut protein in a soybean product); or if  the food contains a toxicant beyond the reasonable boundaries.

Even though it does exist, the overall recognised science of GMO foods does not undeniably differentiate between its nutritional qualities and those of non GMO foods.

Allergens are additionally known to be present in GMO foods, but this is mostly disregarded by the FDA.  As well, now that the EPA has permitted Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide at levels of 60 times over toxic exposure for canola, soy, sunflower, flax and peanuts, it’s a free hand over to chemically spray almost all GMO food beyond satisfactory limits.
