Letter: We deserve the choice

Re “Labeling will drive up food prices” Monitor letter, Nov. 5):

To say that food will cost more as a result of GMO labeling is not true. Labels and packaging are changed all the time to update the look or change the pricing/quantities of products. Just look at all the labeling regarding peanuts. What labeling truly does is give the consumer a choice, and choice is what these agribusiness corporations don’t want us to have.

Why would we not want to know what is in our food? Remember pink slime? I’d like to see a label for that! I can’t understand someone who does not want to know what they are putting in their body. I want to know. I want it to be my choice if I eat GMO food. Why is that so hard for people to understand?
