Another posting by Susan.
As far as I understand it: the non-GMOs change their mind!
After having been non-GMOs (asking for labeling),
they change their minds and become anti-GMOs.

"We're not changing our minds about GMOs. The Non-GMO Project was founded on one thing: the desire to make sure that Americans do not lose their right to eat non-GMO food"




What Bill Nye Got Right About GMOs
Twitter was buzzing this week that Bill Nye the Science Guy – every elementary school’s favorite scientist – has changed his mind about GMOs.
EWG.ORG

Note the "We're not changing our minds".
In English it's not the French rule:
- in French, if there's only one object per person, we use the singular
such as "chacun avec sa pipe à la bouche"
- in English, as soon as there's several persons, they use a plural
such as "We're changing our minds".

My comments:
Americans are rather individual and trusting.
Lobbying is very strong and developed eg rifles (they finance politicians' campaigns)
However, when they stand up and count themselves
they go forward and don't stop.

In France, people are more suspicious.
Lobbying is as strong (see chemists, farmers, oil companies...).
Regarding GMOs, the French reacted quickly
(they had to fight European leaders)
but this doesn't prevent industrials and Europe to fight back
and impose their views when we are not vigilant.
