GMO Labeling on foods. The poster above shows companies that are opposing the law trying to be passed in California that will affect us all. I am disappointed to see some companies that I buy products from organic products are not supporting the passing of this new law! I guess this is where I have to vote with my pocket book and stop buying those brands now. I may not can vote on the law as I am not in California but we can all vote with our pocketbooks and stop buying from companies that do not feel we have a right to know what is in our food.
GMO labeling is very important. This isnt about your political beliefs this simply about do you want to know what is in your food? I sure do. To me this is quite simple, if GMO is so safe and wonderful then why is it such a fight to get disclosure of it on our food labels? Because they know themselves and have said it will be the kiss of death to products selling! Now hows that for a how do you do... We have a right to know what is in our food period.
This site will explain more about this new law that will be voted on soon. We don't all live in California but its my understanding if this passes with enough votes it will be across the board labeling. I hope it passes! I wish I could vote on this! GMO is complex and they intend for it to be. The site above explains it more clearly then anywhere else I have read up on it. It has numerous articles on the subject, explaining in detail what GMO food is and what it has done and will do to our health in very good detail that is easy to understand. You can use the search engine on that site to find all the articles. GMO is scary stuff and its our health, we have a right to know!!
If you feel so inclined by all means spread the word via your blog :O)
Okay I am stepping down off my soap box now..
