With the vote on proposition 37 looming in California, the debate on labeling GMOs is growing stronger with an ever more fervent pitch. There’s a lot of money being spent to oppose the mere labeling of GMOs in California. Should Proposition 37 pass in California, it would likely affect the labeling of GMOs on food products sold in the US, outside of California, too. And finally, Americans will have a clearer picture of the foods they choose to consume.
the fight to label gmos (and what you can do)
The companies that oppose labeling of GMOs (including the parent companies of many of your favorite natural and organic foods brands) have contributed over $34 million against Proposition 37 in California. Proponents of labeling have only been able to contribute a fraction of that amount which is why we need you – not only to drum up support and awareness of the fight to label GMOs, but also to financially support the fight as well.
For this reason, many of your favorite real and traditional foods bloggers have paired up with companies that do not use GMOs and support the labeling of GMOs to bring about awareness of Proposition 37 and increase the financial solvency of the fight to get GMOs labeled in California. And it’s a fight that affects all of us, whether you live in California or not.
