Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman says “the trend is unstoppable toward more and more labeling” for genetically improved foods. Glickman says the only reason he isn’t calling for mandatory labeling is “because we don’t have any of the testing and threshold mechanisms, or would really know how to do it.” Glickman seems not to realize that activists (and the organic food industry that backs them) declared that labeling has “nearly the same effect as a ban.”
