Kansas State Nutritionist Says GMO Label Bill Good for Consumers

 A Kansas State University Research and Extension nutritionist says consumers deserve to know what's in their food

Congress recently passed a bill that will require the labeling of genetically-modified foods. Farmers and food processors fought against the bill, arguing that there is no scientific basis for opposition to GMO foods. The food producers say the labeling will frighten potential customers. But some consumer groups still have concerns about the safety and environmental impact of genetically-modified foods. Kansas State University nutritionist Sandy Procter says the new law will help consumers.

The GMO Labeling Bill, was passed this summer and takes effect at the beginning of next year.
