Well folks, unfortunately the pitch for GMO labeling didn’t get through. Prop 37 was successfully gained 47 percent of California’s votes, but big company names like Monsanto, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Kellogg, General Mills, DuPont, Bayer and other food and pesticide companies put forth nearly $45 million to fund the “No on Prop 37” campaign, and won. According to Natural News, this same campaign has a criminal complaint filed against it with the FBI. The campaign was linked to an alleged criminal fraud in which it used a fake FDA quote and sent out mailers fraudulently using the FDA seal. Tisk, tisk, tisk!
Be not discouraged people! The battle for GMO labeling has just begun! This fight has spread substantial awareness about GMOs both nationwide and worldwide making people question the idea of GMOs and what exactly is in their food. In due time, our rights will be acknowledged. We are more than 4 million votes closer to victory. Their secret is out and we wont stop until until GMO labeling becomes a law. Don’t give up the fight! Continue to support GMO labeling!
Tomorrow, Californians have a chance to vote for the basic principle that consumers have a right to know what is in the food they eat. This basic principle is Proposition 37 people! By supporting Proposition 37, we can join with the 61 countries throughout the world that are already making sure that genetically engineered foods are properly labeled for consumers. With enough votes for Proposition 37 from Californians, people around the nation and the world will be reminded that this basic information is something that we all deserve to know.
We don’t want to lose this battle! People on Twitter from all over the world are Tweeting like crazy trying to spread awareness until the last minute to get Prop 37 passed! See how #GMOLabeling and #Prop37 are trending!
EWG (Environmental Working Group) researchers have found that the average adult in America consumes an average of 193 pounds of GM corn-based products and salad oils every year. Sounds bizarre, but I don’t doubt it. Unless GMO labeling laws like Proposition 37 in California are passed in the very near future, the biotechnology industry will continue to secretly release more GMOs into the food supply. In the next few decades, in fact, Americans will very likely be subjected to a whole host of new, undisclosed GMOs if mandatory GMO labeling does not become a national standard. This is really bad folks!
