Label GMOs

Re "As Organic Foods go mainstream, prices likely to fall" (Business, May 25): The writer notes that having children continues to be the principle trigger for buying organics, and that women sometime sacrifice costly organics so that their children can have an organic diet. Also 91 percent of Walmart shoppers would buy organic if they could afford them.

He mentions that growth hormones, antibiotic and pesticides are the main concerns that lead to shopping organic. Yet he fails to mention GMO's. Monsanto and others are attempting to prevent the labeling of GMO products.

Clearly, the public knows what they want: non-GMO organics.
