Several weeks ago, I told you about the DARK act (Deny Americans the Right to Know). As you may know, the DARK act was a piece of legislation that Monsanto and other companies vested in the production of GMO foods promoted. If passed it would have prevented you from being able to know whether or not a food you were eating was GMO contaminated or not.
I have some good news — the bill failed. Apparently, hiding what's in their food is distasteful to a majority of Americans. Undoubtedly the major reason for the failure was the outpouring of objections from the public. And I know a lot of you participated in that. So thank you!
But that's not all. There's more good news.
Could you detect a deadly poison in a healthy-looking meal?

Just recently President Obama signed a new law to replace the DARK act that requires all food labels to declare for the first time if the product contains GMO ingredients. But there's a little rub to this new law. Just how manufacturers make the declaration can be less than perfectly clear.
Besides simply stating on the label that the food contains GMO contamination, companies can also opt for less obvious disclosure. They also can do it by putting a QR code on the package or giving an 800 number or website that consumers will have to call or visit to find out if the product has GMO ingredients. And because of the very negative opinion the public has for GMO foods, I have a feeling the manufacturers using them are going to go out of their way to make it as difficult as they can for the consumer to know that their product is GMO contaminated. So as usual, I have a completely logical solution to this potential dilemma.
I don't know about you, but there's no way that I am going to scan bar codes, call phone numbers, or go to websites simply to find out whether or not the product I might want to buy is contaminated with GMO foods or not. Who has this much time? Instead, I'm going to keep it real simple. If the food does not clearly state that it's GMO free, I'm not going to buy it. Period. More and more companies are starting to do this. So I don't think I'm going to have too many problems finding safe foods to eat.
