Please stop companies from labeling foods containing genetically modified ingredients as "natural" or "green". There is nothing natural or green about changing the genetic make-up of wholesome whole foods. People who read the labels do so because they care about what their families consume. Many people are ignorant of the dangers of unnatural chemicals and genetically modified ingredients and believe that any product labeled natural is healthier than one that is not. These companies are taking advantage of this ignorance in order to make a larger profit at the cost of the health of many children and adults, especially in low income households. I find this ludicrous, and feel that it should be stopped.All we ask is for truth in labeling.
