The current GM food policy in the United States began with the Clinton administration. Its characteristic is “regardless of whether or not to speak”, that is, a policy that stipulates voluntary labeling but does not actually label, and its theoretical basis is the “substantial equivalence” principle of the US Food and Drug Administration. That is, genetically modified foods and traditional foods are essentially different.
