In California, there is a ballot initiative – officially known as Proposition 37 – which is coming up for vote on November 6.
Proposition 37 will require labeling of genetically engineered / modified foods, and end the routine industry practice of labeling and marketing such foods as “natural.”

Unfortunately, not all of America’s food producers want you to know if there are GMOs in your food. And from a financial standpoint, I can understand why companies like Monsanto are trying to block Prop 37. They have a lot of money invested in producing GMOs and they don’t want the public’s negative opinion of GMOs to hurt their profits.
What really pisses me off is when I find out that America’s major health food brands…
These organic and “natural” traitor companies and brands include: Kellogg’s (Kashi, Bear Naked, Morningstar Farms); General Mills (Muir Glen, Cascadian Farm, Larabar); Dean Foods (Horizon, Silk, White Wave); Smucker’s (R.W. Knudsen, Santa Cruz Organic); Coca-Cola (Honest Tea, Odwalla); Safeway (“O” Organics); Kraft (Boca Burgers and Back to Nature); Con-Agra (Orville Redenbacher’s Organic, Hunt’s Organic, Lightlife); and PepsiCo (Naked Juice, Tostito’s Organic, Tropicana Organic).

…are donating money through their parent companies to block Prop 37
It’s kinda disgusting when brands who make their money promoting HEALTH want to deny their customers the right to make healthy and informed food choices.
