In October, protesters against genetically modified foods marched through Baltimore on their way to Washington. Their goal is to make Congress require that all genetically modified foods be labeled as such, but the effect will to spread superstition rather than increase awareness about these products.

And despite all the misinformation concerning such foods, they are rapidly being assimilated into the American diet.
