Or maybe I should say they let those decide for them who voted against labeling.
Monsanto and other big food corporations won this round by being allowed to spray crops with dangerous pesticides like roundup without this so-called food having to be labeled as GMO in stores.
There is only one way to avoid it: avoiding processed food and some produce unless they are labelled organic and to buy locally grown food from producers that you know.
What many people still don't seem to realize is that the main threat is not necessarily from the modified genes but from the pesticide-resistance that has been bred into these modified genes. I guess as long as the average consumer is not willing to be politically infor med and can easily be swayed by ads not much will change and the majority in this country will continue to eat toxic fake foods. National healthcare will not fix the damage that these people will do to their own health any more than drugs will fix the result of eating sugar-laden foods.
