California Proposition 37 will be appearing on the November election ballot. If passed, it would require any food product containing genetically modified organisms (GMO) to be labeled stating so. The FDA and the companies who developed GMOs say there are no harmful effects from eating GMO foods. Other scientists hold the position that not enough research as been done to verify whether is healthy or not.
In the meantime if you are a registered voter in California, you will have the opportunity to vote whether or not you want food packaging labeled if it contains GMO products.
I support the right to know what is in the food I am purchasing. At this time I'm not saying it should be outlawed like several countries have, however; much more research needs to be done.
There's going to be a hell-of-a fight over this with the large companies who produce or sell GMO products pouring big dollars into its' defeat. Check it out yourself and don't just rely on the TV ads to persuade you.
