Video: Right to know GMOs — The food fight of our lives | EDNP News | Scoop.it
The 'Right to Know' initiative is growing by leaps and bounds with 9 out of 10 Americans insisting that GMOs be labeled.

Karapatan natin malaman kung ang atin bang binibiling produktong pagkain ay may taglay na GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms). Ito ay kailangang ilagay sa tatak ng produkto upang maabisuhan ang mga mamimili kung meron ba o walang GMO ang binibili niya.
