Practically every industrialized country in the world has demanded that
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO's) be labeled if they are in your
food. Many countries don't even allow them in the country. China has
refused our GMO corn more than once.
The United States government has steadfastly refused to address the issue. The great thing about America? We can demand our rights be honored at the ballet box.
That is exactly what's going on California this November with Prop 37. It is a measure to require food companies to disclose if they have used genetically modified ingredients in their products.
Of course the biotech companies know if food companies have to disclose this many people will choose not to buy the product.
They claim such things as it will drive the cost of food up and other scare tactics. They have outspent the supporters of Prop 37 by millions of dollars.
To me it's no different than food companies placing the ingredients on the label and won't cost anymore either.
Imagine if food companies didn't have to list High Fructose Corn syrup or MSG on the label.
This is no different.
If you are not familiar with the facts about GMO's go to Institute for Responsible Technology website and learn more...your health depends on it.
Prop 37 could very well be the "straw that broke the camels back" this election year. Other states could soon follow suite and we would know what's in our food.
Until next time....
