California Prop 37 - be aware folks

Proposition 37, known as the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, will require that all foods made with or containing GMOs, including both raw and processed foods, be labeled as such when sold at the retail level.
Sounds totally proper and sane, right?

Well, not according to certain big businesses like Monsanto corporation, and Pepsico, and Dupont, and Dow Agrosciences, Nestle, CocaCola, Kelloggs, Hersey, Hormel etc. These and many other companies have to date, donated 25 million to DEFEAT the initiative for honest food labeling.
Thousand of mothers and grandmothers are trying to fight back against this onslaught of monetary influence to keep the US public unaware of what is in their food!

If Prop 37 is passed, products made with or containing GMOs will also be prohibited from being marketed and sold as “natural,” a highly-deceptive practice that has become quite common today. Of course any reasonable human being worried about their food consumption, sees that as ridiculous.
(In Canada we have this very stupid rule that even food products imported from third world countries without any health safety rules can be imported, repackaged and labeled as 'Produce of Canada' just because they are repackaged in Canada.)
Nearly 50 other countries, including China, Russia, and all the countries in the European Union (EU), currently label GMOs. The U.S. and Canada are among the only developed nations in the world that do not require honest food labeling.
The passage of Prop. 37 on November 6, however, could change this and much of the rest of the U.S. (and Canada?) will likely follow in its footsteps in the coming months and years, which has the potential to unhinge the corporate monopoly that currently controls the American food supply.

You need to pay attention folks. Transparency and honesty in food labeling is important to your family's future.
Do you really want to see your sons and daughters or grandchildren grow up with odd ball idiosyncrasies and distorted shapes? There is already a phenomenon in Florida known as 'big head syndrome' because children there grow up consuming artificial antibiotics and growth hormones in everything they eat!

Evolution of the human species is one thing, but meddling with the human genome is yet another.

Pull for the humans and pay attention.
