Do You Care What’s in Your Food? 
Vote “Yes” on Prop. 37 to Secure YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW.

Most Americans consume “genetically engineered” (also called GMO) foods daily without knowing it.  60% - 70% of processed foods contain GMOs. Most canola, corn, and soy crops in the US are GMO. 

A GMO is a plant or meat product that has had its DNA artificially altered by genes from other species of plant, animal, virus, or bacteria in a laboratory. The risks to human health are serious enough to have caused 40 countries to require labeling of GMO foods, including the European Union, Japan, and China.  

Don’t you think it’s time for us to have the right to know what’s in our food too, so we can make informed decisions?  Click here to learn how you can help secure your RIGHT TO KNOW by voting “Yes” on Proposition 37 this November: The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act.

"Consumers need to be aware. It's an issue of organic integrity," said Straus, who noted that the lack of labeling made it impossible for shoppers to be sure that the food they purchased was organic — even when labeled as such. -GM Watch
