“It is easier for the world to accept a simple lie than a complex truth.” Alexis de Tocqueville
In recent years, the GMO labeling movement has focused on America’s “right to know.” It has served our cause well and helped to raise awareness across all demographics. However, in the past 18 months, ground-breaking peer-reviewed studies on the impacts of GMOs on animals, human health and the environment have come to light and they are shifting the playing field. Americans are now realizing that they need to know if their food is genetically engineered.
