Richard Hentschel and Dru Banks continue the discussion of GMO foods. 70-80 percent our processed foods are likely to contain some ingredient that came from a genetically engineered (GE) plant. There is a lot of proposed legislation out there now, at the state and federal level with differing wording regarding when a GMO would need to be declared on the label or thresholds that would trigger that requirement. There are already countries around the world that do not allow GE foods to enter their country and that clearly affects any country that exports agricultural goods.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
