Not The Real Thing

Pespi: Not The Real ThingIn the message quoted below Guy della-Cioppa
suggested to use aspartame as an example for a GM-product that directly
benefits consumers. Unfortunately aspartame is as much under attack as GMO's
by activists. Several examples:

some people are trying to sell their own product by telling horror stories:
this "GM" food ingredient in Coke and Pepsi, and
other products, and imagine the consumer backlash that would result (I
would be protesting in the streets myself). NutraSweet is a safe, GM
food product that directly benefits the consumer (as opposed to the
farmer). Would this be an interesting "test case" for educating
consumers about GMO product streams in their food supply? Comments
welcome. Guy della-Cioppa
