Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)
Farmers and consumers should have the right to say no to GMOs. Government has a role to play in supporting continued research into the long-term unknown effects of GMOs on both human and plant health.
Examples of what needs to be done:
- Ensure all GMO products are correctly labelled so consumers can make informed decisions.
- Protect farmers who want their crops to remain GMO free by imposing stricter regulations and legal liability on those responsible for contamination.
- Fund independent research on the long-term health and environmental effects of GMOs.
