    Default Consumer activists seek labeling of genetically modified foods

    May 24, 2011
    By Monica Eng, Tribune reporter

    When a team of activists wearing white hazmat suits showed up at a Chicago grocery store to protest the sale of genetically modified foods, they picked an unlikely target: Whole Foods Market.

    Organic foods, by definition, can't knowingly contain genetically modified organisms, known as GMOs. But genetically modified corn, soy and other crops have become such common ingredients in processed foods that even one of the nation's top organic food retailers says it hasn't been able to avoid stocking some products that contain them.

    "Ultimately, it is the food producer who is responsible for assuring safety," the FDA wrote in a statement to the Tribune...
    If that's the case, will someone please tell me what the FDA's job is.

    I was taught in argumentation that you can't prove a negative. Monsanto cannot prove that their crops are not harmful. It requires an outside agency with no partiality or hidden agenda to undertake proof of harm. And that has been done...except that over and over aain, the proof is ignored or dismissed.
