Americans are more likely to be able to afford ethically sourced food.  Labels like "GMO-Free", "Organic", and "Ethically Sourced" are only there to give food producers the justification they need to jack up their prices for the exact same foods without the labels.

The organic label baffles me; it only has to be a higher percentage organic to be called organic. :?:
