Hillary Clinton remains firm in her stance on GMOs. In 2014 Clinton formally expressed her support from genetically modified crops and biotechnology at the Biotechnology Industry Organization convention in San Diego, stating:

“I stand in favor of using seeds and products that have a proven track record. There is a big gap between what the facts are, and what the perceptions are.”

Clinton professes that there are unwarranted fears surrounding GMOs, many of which come from the terms they are associated with. She then divulges part of her plan to get the public to accept GMOs and biotechnology, which is pretty much just changing how they are marketed.

You can see some of her remarks on changing the narrative of how GMOs are promoted below, or you can watch her entire keynote speech above.
