Your Action Has Never Been More Important…

On November 6th, 2012, our right to know what exactly is in our food could completely disappear.

This isn’t hyperbole.

Here in California there’s a battle being waged by big food and pesticide companies and the little guys — you and I, who just want real, good and natural food. (This is relevant to you even if you live in Bora Bora, so please read on…)

The fight is over Proposition 37. A measure that, if it passes, will require food companies to label foods that contain GMO ingredients.

What this means to you — whether you’re in California or not?

  • It’s a huge blow to bio-technology that is backed by shaky science. Particularly since over 60 countries worldwide have instituted GMO labeling requirements.
  • It would likely ripple through all 49 other states, since if the food companies have to label for California, they’ll probably just label all their products.
  • It protects our environment from the potential of even more GMO crops.
  • It keeps technology out of messing with the DNA of anything. It lets natural be natural.
  • It may even protect your family members, who probably aren’t as healthy as you are — since they’ll wonder what GMO is when they see the label on a box of Frosted Corny Butt Puffs.
  • But here’s the thing…

    Yes on 37 is not winning according to the LA Times

    A new poll by the California Business Roundtable and the Pepperdine University School of Public Policy showed 39.1% of likely voters support the measure, while 50.5% oppose the labeling requirement.

    This is embarrassing.

    In less than 7 days, we could be faced with the fact that GMO foods may never have to be labeled in the United States. (If it doesn’t pass in California — good luck to the other 49.)

    Imagine what precedent this sets.

    If food companies don’t have to say if their food is unnaturally modified, what else can (and do) they get away with?

    I’m not going to answer that question, there’s no time to fuss.

    If you want to know what food you’re eating and essentially want to stop the production of genetically modified foods in the U.S. you must take action now.

    The California Right to Know campaign must raise enough money to run the ad below to counter the false and misleading ads that the food companies have raised over $40 million dollars to run — and protect their bio-tech investments.

    Here’s the ad:

    I think it’s a good one. (Only thing missing is a white coated doctor — this screams credibility, LOL!)

    It’s scary that just a few deceptive ads from the opposition can mislead enough Californians to bring the polling from an initial result of 2 to 1 in favor of 37 to what it is now.

    But there’s still time.

    This campaign needs your help.

    We need you to help by donating if you care about what you’re eating. If you care about the environment. If you care about the health of future generations. If you don’t like being lied to.

    Every penny will go toward running the ad above and to counter the deceptive No on 37 ads that the big industry leaders are using to deceive and scare consumers.

    I know this is an emotional plea, but this is important to me and my brand new family. I don’t want my son to possibly have his health affected by cross contaminated GMO crops that are able to grow freely and unregulated because a measure like this failed.

    Annmarie and I have already donated money to local efforts here, but we’re also donating and additional $2000 tomorrow to help. You don’t have to donate that much. You can donate $1.

    It all counts. But, we do need you to donate.

    Now’s the time for the little guy to rise up.

    Are you up to the task?

    Live Awesome!

Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.
