Mark Weeks: They should tell us when food has been genetically enhanced because as consumers, we should have  a choice when putting food on the table.

Joe Ayers: We should know what is going into our foods. The chemicals in our food create kidney problems for some. Some of our children are ADHD because of this problem. In the past, our cattle just grazed in the fields but now we have these genetically enhanced  foods to feed animals for human consumption that end up having growth hormones so they can get them to market faster.

Derrick White: Yes we should be informed. They tell us when food is organic. We as consumers need help so we will make healthy and wise choices to what we put in our bodies

Perry Lambert: Yes,  we should know. Too many times, we find out later that some defects could have been prevented from what we have put into our environment and not the stuff we put into our bodies. We need choices to live healthy.
