How is printing of a lable going to make the food more expensive, its only going to effect non-gmo products as they will have to remain complient, as organic products do today. But your average box of corn dogs from walmart is just going to slap "contains GMO ingredients" on the side of it and its job done, 20c per million boxes. Adding the lables is almost cost free, keeping the non gmo products free of contamination will be costly, but then a proportion of people would be willing to pay for that, and you have opened up a whole new premium market, as has happened with organic produce. The lables provide for choice. You pay your money and takes your choice, cheap gmo food or expesive non-gmo food, what is the problem? Where is the cost?.
This whole thing sounds more like idealology than common sense. People cant be trusted to make choices, or so some belive. The US is founded on personal responsability and choice, and the anti-labling lobby want to take that away, and play we know best for everybody. I dont care if its proven to be safe by a burecracy that has been known to lie through its teeth in the past, its my choice and i want to minimize my exposure to GMO products. That may sound irrational to some, but its my body, my call.
Why is the average american unable to tell when they are being bent over and fucked in the ass by the corporations they idolise.
