I think america likes to turn to the side about GMO foods...All the other countries are screaming beware though. GMO is seriously bad for everyone. With people who already have issues, we can't afford to risk more damage!!!
It's because other countries (especially EU countries) have standards that are implemented based on scientific research. In the USA the standards are governed by people with special interests, and a large percentage of the USDA voting members are financially linked to Monsanto and other GMO companies. The current Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, has never even tried to hide his ties to Monsanto. And many former FDA employees got jobs at Monsanto after they retired from government work.
This could all end, and our health could improve, if we just quit allowing special interest money to rule this country. In the UK there are strict caps on the amount of money a candidate can use to run for public office. WE NEED something like that.

If we try to serve both sides, we cannot stand our own ground.

I've also been wondering the effect of GMO food on diseases such as celiac and other food intolerances. Could it be that people are intolerant to genetically modified wheat, rather than wheat itself? I see many people on this forum also claim intolerances to other common genetically modified foods, like corn and soy. Even most gluten-free food products seem to be made with GM ingredients (baking mixes, flours, etc.)
