California to ban college cafeteria meal plans that include GMO foods.
That's my prediction.

Think about it:

1. Meals plans are contractual agreements recognized by the government. If students didn't receive receipts when they paid their money and couldn't go to small claims court no matter what, then the meal plans might be acceptable.

2. GMO foods are non-traditional. For thousands of years, people weren't eating GMO foods.

3. A lot of people feel that GMO foods are disgusting.

How do you propose to defend the traditional meal plan? The obvious solution is to ban meal plans that include GMO foods.

You could say the same about ice cream or pasteurized milk....

For better or worse are food is different than 4000 years ago...it is for better...

Humans have been genetically altering their food sources for 4000 years... you do realize that correct...

But if you want to eliminate cows and wheat and tomatoes ect from your diet go right ahead....
