The twisted vortex that is the debate over GMO can be hard to follow. Here's three tidbits about the difference between the state of play in Europe vs. America that you should know, if you don't already:
  • The vast majority of Americans (90%) want companies to disclose whether their products contain GMOs (via Iowa State University)
  • Hershey develops non-GMO options for Europe, but not for the US
  • The friendly folks over at the US FDA (Food & Drug Administration) still haven't defined the word "natural", which means that most American products containing GMOs can claim to be natural
