GMO Labeling

GMO labeling is not only about Science (GMO labeling bill lacks a scientific justification. Boston Globe, July 30, 2014: A10). It is also about economics.

Efficient markets require informed buyers and sellers. The labeling of GMO products helps informs the buyers as to what they are purchasing.

Having these labels will also encourage scientists to provide convincing evidence that GMO products are harmless; or, at least, to communicate that evidence effectively.
