Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are not and should not be called natural or green. These GMOs do not occur naturally in the wild but require a highly technical man controlled process. Nor are they 'green' or ecologically safe or sound. They cross-pollinate with non-GMOs, are uncontrollable once released, and the toxic waste will outlast nuclear waste. Until they are proven safe, they should not be assumed safe. Furthermore, all foods that are or contain GMOs should be required to be clearly labeled as GMO.
