GMO’s = bad

Prop 37 calls to require food & drink companies to label their foods if they included any Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s).

A few weeks before the election, big companies threw a ton of cash at a campaign against Prop 37. To name a few:

NAME OF CONTRIBUTOR EMPLOYER OCCUPATION AMOUNT▼
MONSANTO COMPANY $7,100,500.00
E.I. DUPONT DE NEMOURS & CO. $4,900,000.00
PEPSICO, INC. $2,145,400.00
BASF PLANT SCIENCE $2,000,000.00
BAYER CROPSCIENCE $2,000,000.00
DOW AGROSCIENCES LLC $2,000,000.00
SYNGENTA CORPORATION $2,000,000.00
KRAFT FOODS GLOBAL, INC. $1,646,000.00
COCA-COLA NORTH AMERICA $1,455,500.00
NESTLE USA, INC. $1,315,600.00
CONAGRA FOODS $1,176,700.00
GENERAL MILLS, INC. $1,135,300.00
KELLOGG COMPANY $790,700

Their campaign scared people to vote No on Prop 37.

Now, why would these companies throw so much $$ into a campaign against labeling food? Is there something they do not want us to find out?

Here is an example of evil in the world.

I was heart broken when I found out that Prop 37 did not pass, and now, I will do my best not to support these companies or buy products that have known GMO’s.

We have the right to know what’s in our food… This really inspires me to start my own farm & grow my own food..
