I have nothing against the US selling GM food in Europe, as long as every customer can decide for himself, but this is in reality not the case. The problem is that in European countries the labelling requirements for GM food are generally inadequate and do not cover all cases, e.g. there is no labelling for ingredients below a certain percentage, some pre-processed ingredients or meat from animals fed with GM plants. In fact, most of the labelling is so fine-print that it cannot even be read through a looking glass - illegaly so, but who would go from the supermarket all the way to court only to get slightly larger letters.
I personally do not wish to buy any GM food, not even traces of it, and also do not wish to buy meat produced from animals fed with GM plants, for reasons that have nothing to do with health concerns. I simply do not wish to directly or indirectly support companies like Monsanto who patent genes, blackmail and sue farmers who do not want to buy their shit, and generally are 0 trustworthy. In a nutshell, if there was a mandatory big red warning label "GM" on each and every product during which production GM plants played any role whatsoever, nobody would complain about the US trying to sell their "low cost food".
As for the scientists, their point that one of the editors worked for Monsanto deserves some consideration, doesn't it?
