I’m talking about Proposition 37, a citizen’s initiative on the ballot of California to mandate labeling of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
Why Prop 37 Matters
GMOs foods have never been proven safe. And yet they’ve unknowingly been in our food supply since the early 1990s. We’ve all been eating them without knowing it. What’s worse is that they’re almost impossible to avoid. They’re in the majority of supermarket foods and they’re in the oils that virtually every restaurant uses.
Countries around the world are banning them as the negative health and environmental impacts become clearer.
Monsanto, Dupont, Coca-Cola, Kellog’s and many more from Big Ag have a donated tens of millions of dollars to defeat Proposition 37 on November 6th.
Three Things You Can Do
First, don’t buy GMO foods! Look for the Non-GMO Project label on foods.
One such company is Eden Foods.
Eden Foods is the oldest natural and organic food company in North America. They started out as a small natural food co-op in the late 1960s and have been a pioneer ever since. In the early 1970s they were one of the first to establish relationships with artisan Japanese traditional food makers.
I regularly purchase their sea vegetables, rice vinegar and sesame oil in my local health food store.
They also pledge to NEVER use GMOs in any of their products.
