There are many political choices you'll make today when voting. One that I'd like to think many Californians agree on is Proposition 37.
If approved, Prop 37 would mandate labels on “raw or processed food offered for sale to consumers if the food is made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways.” It would also prohibit any food with GM ingredients from being labeled as “natural.”
Mainstream scientists say there is little evidence that there are any harmful health effects associated with consuming GM crops. So why if its not harmful are the big food companies against gmo labeling? I believe its because we here in this great consumer country don't wanna be reminded that "We Are What We Eat!" Educate yourself about genetically modified foods. What wasn't deemed harmful yesterday could be banned for causing serious illness tomorrow.
I don't believe in telling people how to vote, but I do believe being informed and seeking out truths helps one make a clear and conscience decision on election day.
