Biotech giant Monsanto says it opposes labeling of genetically modified foods.
But in a series of ads the company ran in France in 1998 after the European Union instituted mandatory labeling of GM foods, Monsanto said: “You have the right to know what you eat, especially when it’s better…After several months of debate, Europe has just adopted a new law for the labeling of food that comes from genetically engineered plants…We believe that products that come from biotechnology are better and that they should be labeled.”
If Monsanto supported Europeans’ right to know, why not Americans’?
