Find out more about GMO Foods and proposition 37 here:
We Have a Right to Know What's in Our Food: GMOs have not been proven safe, and long-term health studies have not been conducted. A growing body of peer-reviewed studies has linked these foods to allergies, organ toxicity, and other health problems. The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act is simple: The initiative would simply require food sold in retail outlets to be labeled if it is produced through genetic engineering, and would not allow these products to be labeled as “natural.” The free market is supposed to provide consumers with accurate information about products so we can make informed choices abut what we want to eat and feed our children. Fifty countries around the world already require GMO labeling, including all of Europe, Japan, India and China. http://www.carighttoknow.org/facts

    I would really like to attend this considering I have some information to share about technology that clears GMO's from seeds and crops. However I don't own a car and was wondering if someone who is going perhaps would not mind giving me a ride if you are around the point richmond area or in the marina bay area. :) would be much appreciated. Cheers.

      I believe the Student Union Building on Berkeley Campus is about a 20 minute walk from the Shattuck Bart Station......

    I cannot attend as I will be in Palo Alto on the street tabling & doing "honk & wave" for YES on 37. We really need people to get onto the streets so please join one of the groups at CaRightToKnow.org. We need you to counter the lies from the opposition.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
