Radical environmental activists convinced the Los Angeles city council Tuesday to draft an ordinance banning the production or sale of genetically modified organisms (GMO) within the city limits, less than two years after the voters of California rejected Proposition 37, which would have forced the labeling of GMO foods. The ban flies in the face of scientific evidence that there is no significant public health or environmental hazard from GMO.
