Modified food labels

When I was in college, about 40 years ago, I thought the Sierra Club was the greatest thing. I was and still am all for conservation of wilderness and wildlife habitat restoration. I like camping, backpacking, remember “Just leave a footprint?” That’s what the Sierra Club was all about. It was the club of John Muir.

In the Jan. 19 Viewpoint “Eat food? Sign here,” the club writes about labeling of food we eat. Haven’t we been eating new and improved (modified) foods for years? I suspect that the real problem for most of us is that we just eat too much.

Maybe the Sierra Club should stick to conservation and planning excursions into the woods. And please stop sending me those pre-addressed petitions to send in.
