Please regulate that products that have ingredients created through Genetic Engineering shall never be promoted as "Natural" or "Green".
The use of GMOs is causing irreversible damage to our entire food system. GMOs are not “Green.” GMOs use far more herbicides, damage soil and marine ecology, harm beneficial insects, and cross pollinate. Their self-propagating genetic pollution will outlast the effects of climate change and nuclear waste!
It is already a travesty of justice to allow Monsanto run a monopoly in the seed market for corn and soybeans. and it will add insult to injury to allow their products to be present in foods that are labeled "Green" and "Natural" when they are not.
Please protect consumers against deceiving practices. and also help level the playing field for farmers that use sustainable methods to produce healthy food.
