Eat Well: Just say NO to GMOs

WWW will be back soon! Promise, promise, promise. In the meantime, I'd like to share the following PSA on behalf of my friends at #yeson37. A proposition calling for the labeling of genetically engineered foods. 
See the following, taken from the Right to Know website:
The California Right to Know initiative is a simple measure that requires labeling of genetically engineered foods, which are plants or crops that have had their DNA artificially altered by genes from other plants, animals, viruses or bacteria, in order to produce foreign compounds in that food. This type of genetic alteration occurs in a laboratory and is not found in nature. The United States is one of the only developed nations that does not provide consumers with labels stating that the food has been genetically engineered. 
“More than 40 other countries -- including all of Europe, Japan, China and, beginning next January, India -- label genetically engineered food. The majority of people in the world have easy access to this information. Californians also deserve to be able to make informed choices about the food that they eat," said Cathy Calfo, executive director, California Certified Organic Farmers. 
A wide array of consumer, health and environmental groups, businesses and farmers and scientists and doctors back the initiative. Major endorsers include Public Citizen, Sierra Club, American Public Health Association, United Farm Workers, California Certified Organic Farmers, Organic Consumers Association, Consumer Federation of America, Nature’s Path, Lundberg Family Farms, Organic Valley, Dr. Bronner’s, Eden Foods,, Center for Food Safety, Food Democracy Now! and the California State Grange. For more information, contact: Stacy Malkan, 510-542-9224,; or  Lori Sinsley, 415-308-6970,

This is not a Republican vs Democrat issue. This is about our right as parents (and people who eat food) to know where our food is coming from.
"The concern is that genetic modification alters the proteins in foods in ways that researchers do not yet fully understand. Substances that have never existed before in nature are entering our food supply untested." - source
