But that position just added fuel to a very fiery debate over Proposition 105. Here's an excerpt from the hundred comments (and counting) posted in response to the Chipotle endorsement story.
This isn't about knowing what's in your food. It's about scientific illiteracy and irrational fear.
So do you consider all 64 other countries around the world who label genetically engineered food to be scientifically illiterate with irrational fear? All of Europe? Japan? Brazil? Australia? Russia? China? & the kicker is that U.S. food companies already provide this label & info. to citizens of other countries. Why are Coloradans being left in the dark? If food can be changed so much that it can be patented as something new/different, we have a basic human right to know. I want to know which foods have been treated with neonicotinoid pesticides (virtually all GMOs according to the May issue of Colorado Gardener). Neonicotinoids. Related to nicotine. YES on 105!!!How are you voting on 105? What do you think it's important for voters to know about the proposal?
