According to our text, more than 60% of the foods found in U.S. supermarkets contain ingredients derived from genetically modified crops. However, the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) as a food source is quite controversial. Some are opposed to GMOs entirely, while some argue that there must at least be adequate labeling on food items that indicates whether a food source contains GMOs.
Read the section in your text on GMOs (pgs. 340-342) and the article below. Take a position on this issue as well as on how GMOs should or should not be labeled. Make sure that you consider the cost involved with food production as well as the ever-growing global population which needs to be fed.
