Abbott Products Contain GMO's

Pros:NONE!

Cons:Genetically Modified Ingredients

I have e-mailed Abbott Laboratories on prior occasions requesting information about their policy on genetically modified ingredients in their products. I received a response saying that in the UK, they used genetically modified ingredients but most has been eliminated because of the labelling laws there. Unfortunately, this is not the same in the United States.

Since the United States has no labelling requirements for products containing genetically modified ingredients, manufacturers are free to include such materials in their products without telling the customer, this inlcludes "Ensure" and other "health" products.

Genetic Engineering has sparked concern all around the world. There is much opposition in Europe and Japan for example but the US hasn't jumped on the bandwagon. As public awareness continues to rise in the US, appropriate labelling laws will no doubt, be enacted.

In the mean time however, one must presume that a product contains genetically modified ingredients unless it is certified organic or guaranteed non-GM. There are other health drinks out there that state they do not contain GM which is used as a marketing tool.

If a manufacturer is not using GM, they will generally make this very clear on the label. Abbott fails to do so.

As genetic engineering is untested, potentially dangerous and hazardous technology to our own health and our environment, I urge you to stay away from products of manufacturers who are encouraging GM and deceiving you into believing that something is healthy when they clearly wouldn't know. No long term studies have been conducted on the effects of genetic engineering. However, some short term studies have shown rats getting cancer and the intestines of bees altering. I don't think it's worth the risk... do you?
