1. General Comments I have read many articles and done some research. All of the information that I have gathered tells me that this (bioengineering and genetically modified foods) is a complicated issue, something that can have far reaching effects on the world's food supply as we know it, and not something that can be decided on lightly. I feel strongly that I want to know exactly what I am eating, where it comes from, and how it was treated. I fear we are playing God by altering food in ways that maybe we shouldn't. And I feel I have the right to know what I am eating! Maybe others don't care - then they don't have to read the label. But, for those who do care, labeling is a must, in my opinion. If it doesn't happen, hoards of people will begin to go locally, where they know what they are getting, and the food chain will be affected. Count my voice in for labeling of all foods! Gerianne
