Over 80 percent of americans support mandatory labels on foods containing DNA.

Huh. And I was raising eyebrows that Russia recently officially declared theology to be a science. Now I'm not sure which one is more 'radical'.

Sounds like time to revive the campaign against dihydrogen monoxide.

One sure way to disturb a mummy's rest-
King Tut’s mask, world’s ‘most famous archaeological relic,’ has been permanently damaged

Since I demand labeling on all food, and all food has, or at least had, D.N.A. in it, I would therefore have to support such a position.
Tell me how I'm wrong. ;)

Salt, baking soda, gelatine, sugar, meringue…

I'm not even sure that there are cells in butter or vegetable oils.

Meringue is egg whites. There is never any D.N.A. contamination in it?
Who calls pure salt or baking soda food? Remind me not to visit you during dinner time. ;)

But seriously, I'll give you some heavily processed / chemically refined products as never having D.N.A.

Dihydrogen monoxide contains radioactive tritium and deuterium. Both are used in thermonuclear weapons.

Hardly surprising given that dihydrogen monoxide is an essential component of most nuclear reactors.

And they're even allowed to dump that stuff into our water supply.
