What are the benefits of GMF's?

-Combat world hunger

-Medical benefits

-Pest resistant

-Fight malnutrition

What are the risks of GMF's?

-Unknown toxins

-Risk of negative interactions

-GMF's are not labeled

-Unknown genetic effect on humans


Should GMF's be labeled?

In my opinion, I do think that GMF's should be labeled on the foods that they are in. I think this because if someone is allergic to something that is added to a food, they should have been informed that it was in the food, before they had eaten it.
