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
