In a time of questions and ambiguity around the subject, Gary Hirshberg, co-founder of Stonyfield Farm and chairman of the Just Label It campaign, offers an educated position on GMOs. According to Gary, there are three important truths about GMOs:
1) “GMOs have put farmers and all of us on a toxic herbicide treadmill.”
2) “Labeling GMOs will empower the marketplace to reject unsustainable agriculture.”
3) “The GMO patent-holding chemical companies have cleverly diverted attention from their herbicide sales by arguing that labeling is a food safety issue but their case is faltering. Even the Des Moines Register just editorialized in favor of mandatory labeling as a consumer right to know issue.”
