New Hampshire lawmakers aren’t buying anti-GMO scare tactics

(Summary)

Grace Boatright, legislative director of the National Grange, a non-profit organization that advocates for rural agriculture, praises New Hampshire legislators who voted against a GMO labeling measure. She says that the representatives “clearly realize that consumers deserve a debate based on science, not clever marketing slogans designed to drive market share to organic giants.” In response to anti-GMO activist claims that “92 percent of Americans support mandatory labels,” Boatright notes that a survey conducted by the International Food Information Council last year found that only 3 percent of consumers support GMO labels. “It would be shameful if we let scare tactics and half-truths drive up costs and reduce choices for consumers while lining the pockets of self-styled activists,” Boatright writes.
