California Prop 37
This seems to be a big year for voters - not only federally, but also with the State of California.
If you haven't heard yet, California voters will have Prop 37 to decide on this fall. Voting yes on Prop 37 will require food manufacturers to label their products to inform the consumers of the presence of a genetically modified ingredient. In my opinion, we have every right to be informed of what we put into our bodies.
I found this article on the Huffington Post which points out how Monsanto (arguably the largest producer of genetically modified foods) is trying to mislead the public about this proposition. If you have the time, check out the lists of groups who are supporting and opposing Prop 37 - it might make you think twice about those certain "organic" companies you see at the grocery store.
