I'm not exactly sure what a "moratorium" is, but it sounds good in this case. I'm assuming it has something ot do with stopping GMo's? It's just crazy that we are designing these foods, with very little research as to the impact they have on long-term health, and yet we continue to sell them...dare I say...like candy??

You know there are still many oils made with the worst qualities being sold to the people who do not even imagine what they are doing with their bodies, without counting that some places still have the tendency of reusing oil for saving money and harming even more the consumer
