To be honest, I don't trust the FDA anymore. As far a labeling goes, I won't buy a product unless I know or can at least trust that it is free from GMO's, growth hormones, and anything else that is not naturally found in that product. It's awfully sad that this day in age the consumer is faced with the only option of leaving the county so they can eat with peace of mind. Sorry Monsanto, but I don't want your freaky foods. How can you even claim that they are completely safe when we just don't know what the long term effects are? I'll just end with six year old niece should not have breasts, and she does.

You are so right, Elizabeth. I will add that I think Monsanto is evil. They certainly don't have the best interests of the consumer in mind. Those industry farms are terrible, to their animals and the enviroment. How many times has the FDA said 'oops' and done a recall after it was too late?

Safe or not, we have a right as consumers to go to the scientific literature and determine it for ourselves. The milk is chemically different. The proteins are different, there's a higher chance of having antibiotics, and there is more IGF-1.
If two things are physically not the same, we have a right as consumers to know which one we are purchasing.
There may be nothing wrong with, say, a red shirt rather than a blue shirt, but we still have the right to choose which we wish to purchase, and if our reason is that red dye is bad for you, we are allowed to have that reason whether it is false or not. They may be almost the same, and to the red dye company it may seem the same, but it's still a different shirt, and for whatever our reasons, we still are allowed to choose.

I agree...and am frustrated that labels don't indicate hormone free or GM free. Does anyone know if Haagen Daaz ice cream is hormone free?
I love their vanilla...

60% of USA corn (and it's derivatives) is GMO
