PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The controversy is growing over whether foods should be labeled if they contain GMOs — genetically modified organisms.
Vermont recently passed legislation requiring GMO labeling and dozens of other states are considering similar actions.

Consumer Reports tested more than 80 processed foods to see just how widespread GMOs are and whether you can trust food labels.
About 90 percent of corn produced in the United States is now genetically modified. The same is true with soybeans. Consumer Reports’ tests show GMOs can be in lots of foods, including some cereals, snack bars and soy-based infant formulas.
Since labeling is not required, you can’t tell by looking at the package, although some may say “No GMO,” “Non GMO” or “Non-GMO Project Verified.”
Consumer Reports tested a variety of products containing soy or corn for GMOs — at least 2 samples of each — each from a different lot.
“Unless they were labeled organic, the vast majority of products without a specific claimregarding GMOs actually did contain a substantial amount,” Dr. Michael Crupain said.
What about foods labeled “natural?”
A Consumer Reports’ survey of 1,000 people found that more than 60 percent believe “natural” means “no GMOs.”
That’s not what the tests found.
“There is no legal definition for the claim ‘natural’ on processed foods. Virtually all the samples we tested that said ‘natural,’ but didn’t make claims about being organic or non GMO in fact contained a high percentage of GMOs,” Dr. Crupain said.
Then, there are unverified claims like “Non GMO.” Though not independently certified, they mostly proved accurate in Consumer Reports’ tests.
The one exception was Xochitl corn chips, They’re labeled “no GMO,” but contained a high proportion of GMO corn in all six samples tested.
Its “Organic” white corn chips did meet Consumer Reports’ standards for non-GMO.
“Our findings confirmed that the most reliable labels for avoiding GMOs are ‘Non-GMO Project Verified,’ or organic, both independently certified,” Dr. Crupain said.
A spokesperson for Xochitl chips told Consumer Reports that the company and its supplier “are both baffled” by Consumer Reports’ test results.

3D scanning and printing has changed the way medicine is practiced and businesses are run, but some of the less life-altering things it does are no less awesome. Take Tom Burtonwood’sFolium, a book of printed “pages” that each contain a different piece of art you can actually feel with your hands.

Burtonwood scanned nine pieces of art and sculpture, ranging from 664 BC to the 20th century, at the Chicago Institute of Art. Using Autodesk’s 123D Catch and Recap photogrammetry, he was able to capture and the subtle topography of each piece in model space, then print them as pages for the book. There’s a relief of Buddha’s Footprints from second century India. A portrait of George Washington from the 19th century. Even a nod to Chicago’s own architectural heritage—the last page contains a relief of a panel designed by Louis Sullivan.

The project is made even cooler by the fact that the cover and table of contents is written in braille, so the visually impaired can enjoy these works of art by feeling them. The entire project has been released under a Creative Commons License, which means that you can head over toThingiverse and print your own copy right now. Because the way the book is designed, the pages can also be removed from the binding—so you could, say, make a cast of each piece using the negative space on the back of the page.

Vladimir Putin, Vladimir Yevtushenkov: FILE - In this Tuesday, May 5, 2009 file photo, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, left, and Russian tycoon Vladimir Yevtushenkov, owner of Sistema Holding, during their meeting in Moscow. A billionaire Russian tycoon was placed under house arrest Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014, in a money-laundering case that has drawn comparisons with a government crackdown on Russia’s Yukos oil company more than a decade ago. The Investigative Committee, Russia’s top investigative agency, said that Vladimir Yevtushenkov, the head of Sistema holding company, was suspected of involvement in a money-laundering scheme involving oil assets in the province of Bashkiria. Sistema owns the Bashneft oil company, which is based in Bashkiria.

For centuries, these pieces of art have stayed cloistered away inside of museums. Burtonwood is bringing them out for us to actually touch (the horror!) and in the case of the blind, perhaps experience for the first time. [Tom Burtonwood; via Boing Boing]
