Call For Mandatory GMO Food Labels

A genetically modified organism, or GMO, has been altered by scientists to produce a desirable trait, most commonly used to withstand herbicides. Studies have shown that GMOs are connected with serious environmental damage and potential health problems; the liver and kidney are mostly affected by GMOs. GMOs could also lead to unnatural allergens.

Europe has had labeling of GMOs since 2002 but the Obama administration has said there needs to be more support shown for GMO labeling in America.
