Organics activist Ronnie Cummins lashes out at biotech industry, urges California labeling initiative

Ronnie Cummins, an organics activist, vilifies GMOs and the biotech industry in his op ed.  Cummins claims that the food sector need a total revamp, including the addition of labeling those foods with GMOs. He says “in the food sector, we cannot continue to hand over 90% of our consumer dollars to out-of-control, biotech, chemical-intensive, energy-intensive, greenhouse gas polluting corporations and “profit at any cost” retail chains.”

Cummins suggests that initiatives to label GMOs, such as Proposition 37, which will appear on the California state ballot this November, are one way to protect the food and organics industry.
