Abstract

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) have been a hot topic of debate for decades. Granted, the biotechnology industry has seen opposition in many advances in terms of their ethical applications. Arguments have centered their safe incorporation into the food supply. It is difficult to honestly assess their safety since they have not been around for too long. That is why some extensively advocate for them to be labeled when incorporated into foods, to give consumers autonomy in making decisions on the foods they consume. Opponents, however, worry about public confusion, price increases and overall costs to producers, manufacturers, and consumers alike. This paper explores the regulation of GMOs, their economic impact, and takes into account several ethical considerations regarding labeling.
