Saving millions of unweaned baby cows from being slaughtered for their rennet containing stomach is also a plus.
If you read the whole article you might figure out why "GMOs need to be labeled!" doesn't make much sense.
"By any measure, the use of GMOs in the production of cheese is among the greatest feats of modern food science. But today, that achievement is often ignored, disowned, and overlooked.... This is the story of how genetic engineering saved the cheese industry, and how it continues to satisfy one of our biggest culinary cravings in spite of society’s shaky relationship with GMOs."

Philae, the first spacecraft to land on a comet, was dropped on to the surface of Comet 67P by its mothership, Rosetta, last November.
It worked for 60 hours before its solar-powered battery ran flat. The comet has since moved nearer to the sun and Philae has enough power to work again, says the BBC's science correspondent Jonathan Amos.
The probe tweeted the message, "Hello Earth! Can you hear me?"
Jean-Yves Le Gall, the president of France's CNES space agency, told AFP that Philae had sent signals for a period of two minutes "as well as 40 seconds worth of data".
Philae is designed to analyse ice and rock on the comet.
The Rosetta probe took 10 years to reach the comet, and the lander - about the size of a washing-machine - bounced at least a kilometre when it touched down.
_Its exact location on the comet has since been a mystery.
However, Esa said on Thursday that it might have located it from images and other data from the mothership._
Before it landed they knew that the down thruster that was supposed to hold it down while the anchor bolts were fired was busted. The anchor bolts did not fire and it bounced a couple miles away. If the downthruster had worked it would have rebounded off the surface never to return.
Why? 100 kilo Philae, 220 pounds, the size and weight of your standard washing machine. Nice mass but on comet 67P which has a mass of Mount Fuji, that means not much gravity. How much? Philae has a gravity attraction to 67P as if it weighed a standard sized piece of paper. 220 pound mass so not like you can pick it up like a piece of paper but once it starts moving away it keeps on going.
And the killer awesome thing that has happened. If everything had worked Philae would be cooked and dead months ago. Stuck out in the open it would have done some nice science but it would have burned out.
But now, hidden in a crevice we might get the greatest show ever as the comet heats up. Philae is on the head of the rubber duck. By August when the sun is cooking this comet that head might pop off! And we might have a front row seat. Or not. This piece of paper sits on a chunk of ice and dirt that will be boiling and jetting.
