I would like to be able...

I would like to be able to choose not to buy GMO products when I shop. I would like to look at the label and be informed if it is a GMO product or not. Having a product labeled so that I can make an informed choice is not unreasonable or asking too much. For example products containing peanuts are labeled to protect people that are allergic. If GMO products are so great they should not have any problem with proudly identifying their origin. What I see is a big backlash against letting the customer be informed and make their own choice. What I see is GMO producers trying to trick people into buying their products. What are they hiding ? What are they afraid of? Is it possible without deceptive marketing and labeling that GMO products would have a much smaller market share? Of course! There is no doubt. This is just another example of corporate greed and corruption. I don't want to buy products from shady underhanded companies that don't have the courage to market their products openly and on their own merits. If GMO producers chose not to voluntarily identify their products then I do not see it unreasonable that they be required to. I have every right to know what is going into my body and and not be deceived by GMO producers. My right to an informed choice supersedes their position and preference of anonymity.
