    It will be interesting to see how this works out.

    Probably means that there will be less of certain foods at Whole Foods.

    Biotech sure seems to worry people, even though people have been breeding plants since the beginning of agriculture into dramatically different plants.

    Yes -- that fact makes me wonder what the labeling rules will be like.

    I'm actually happy to see this. I'd like to know when my food contains GMO ingredients. It at least gives me a choice.
    The way some produce is now genetically modified to produce its own pesticides, doesn't sit well with me.
