What’s the reasoning behind mandatory GMO labeling laws? With dueling bills in Congress—one backed by the food industry, one not—it’s a question worth considering. Democratic California Sen. Barbara Boxer’s Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act would require all food products that contain GMOs to be labeled. The Safe and Accurate Food Label Act, the industry-backed bill reintroduced by Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., last week, would preempt state-level labeling laws but would also establish federal standards for a voluntary GMO-free label. . . .

Don't let the fox be set to guard the henhouse. All food products containing GMOs should be labeled as such, and it should not be voluntary. If you want to eat GMO foods, that is your right. But don't try to force your choice on the rest of us.
