On November 6th, You Might Lose the Right to Know Where Your Food Comes From…

At the end of the day on November 6th, we might lose the right to know where your food comes from — at least in the U.S.

It’s a scary thought, but it’s very insanely possible.

Here’s why…

Tomorrow, (November 6th) Californians vote on Proposition 37. This proposition will require food manufacturers to label GMO foods.

This, of course, is not in the bio-tech, pesticide or food company’s best interests.

If they have to label GMO foods, the public will become increasingly more aware of what genetic food modification is and start asking questions.

To date, the food and pesticide companies in the U.S. have been able to slowly and effectively penetrate the food market with their GMO foods even though there is insufficient science to prove that they’re safe (and some science that says they’re not.)

Basically, they’ve decided to deploy and conduct massive science experiment on all of us without our consent.

So, obviously, there will be some questions that they don’t want to have to answer.

Tomorrow, this all could stop.

If Californians vote “Yes” on 37, we will retain our right to know what is in our food.

Also, once GMO labeling is required, the food companies will have to start explaining themselves and their technology in a much larger public forum — not as they are now.

In fact, a coalition of companies ranging from Dow to Monsanto have raised over $40,000,000 to counter the grassroots efforts and destroy the credibility of Proposition 37 supporters — good people who just want to know what is in their food.

This is the equivalent of attempting to sweep this little California inconvenience under the rug.

It’s also an investment to keep things the way they are — more secretive than not.

Unfortunately, it’s working.

The polls are showing that their efforts are convincing California voters of an untruth — that their food bills will increase by over $400 a year (BTW, the study funded by the opposition.)

The results are a deadlock because of this.

But, truth is, no one’s food bills will increase. The reason why is because changing a label on a box is regular protocol for packaged food companies. They do it all the time. In fact, in many of the 61 countries around the world that require GMO labeling — the price of the same foods is lower than what you’ll find in the U.S.

You can watch this interesting video to learn more about that (don’t mind the creepy voice over)…

(SIDE NOTE: What is surprising about this is that these companies are already gouging the U.S. consumer with higher prices on products that are not even exported. Now they’re threatening to raise prices even more?)

So to state it again, GMO labeling won’t raise prices of food.

But what if Proposition 37 doesn’t pass?

That’s my fear. It would be a devastating loss.

The opposition will have delivered a mighty blow to those of us who care about what we eat.

If the Proposition fails, the food and pesticide companies will have gained an inside track to continue to alter our food — without us knowing, without sufficient regulation — for many years to come.

You won’t know what is in your food. You won’t know where it’s produced. You won’t know if it contains genes that allow it to produce pesticides when it’s sitting on the supermarket shelf.

Scary stuff, but not I’m going to let it happen in the world I want to live in.

So, here’s what needs to be done.

And, yes, it requires your help!

If you’re a registered California voter, your job is easy. Vote tomorrow. Yes on 37.

If you’re not a California voter, please take to the social networks and tell people to vote “Yes” on 37. Some of the best articles and reasons you can share are here.

You also can still donate up until 5:00 PM today here. I’m assuming this is California time.

That’s it, but please note, we need your help as a team.

Everyone needs to do something.

Personally, Ann and I have donated to the campaign, written about it and donated some more. It’s just that important to us — particularly now that we have a son who will grow up with the consequences of this Proposition.

So now, I’m asking you to help as well — to take one extra step, even if you’ve done something already, if you want to keep good food on your plates.

Share. Vote. Post. Donate.

Whatever it takes to gain the extra momentum we need to make this Proposition a reality.

Yes on 37.

Live Awesome!

    Hi Kevin, is there a petition we can go to on the Internet and sign. I am from Australia, ACT.

    I am from Canada and fear that if good American’s, such as yourselves, who attend to and read this website, fail to make Prop 37 go through, Canadians will be at the mercy of the GMO corporations, as well. Tell your friends to tell their friends. My heart and good thoughts are with you all -those who do, and do not act. Good luck to Prop 37…

    Hi Kevin,

    At the end of the day..what is happening is that we are losing our right to choose over many world issues, not just food. I hope people will make a stand. STOP GMO – VOTE AGAINST IT and as one of your other followers wrote on another of your articles….no more bull…. tell it as it is….we are being lied to and misled.

    Thanks for keeping us all informed from around the world Kevin.

    Namaste, Eileen.

    I find genetically modified food better tasting than natural. I will vote no on this. I mean, how awesome is it that they can make an ear of corn the size of a full grown man’s leg. Incredible!

      The Gmo corn carries some poison in each sweet kernel, and if a pregnant mom eats it often, her child will end up with some in the eggs she is growing.. They use bacteria like E coli to carry the new genes… that will change the thickness of skin, or make it resistant to disease, .. but they made it resistant to the poison weed spray, and now weeds are also resistant, so it is in the corn, but the corn lived through the spray, and so did the weeds now.. They will not divulge what poisons are being used. Round up was used for corn weeds. Then there is Soy beans, canola, and I wonder if the popping corn is as well…?
      Monsanto does not want us to have any seeds from heritage plants.. the originals that were organic. They want you to buy their seeds each year.. A farmer could never afford to.. They always save their own seeds which are accustomed to their soil. Many different factors are involved.. They can sue the farmers using their seeds which they did not buy, or plant.. they simple blew over to their land and grew.. One farmer lost his farm over a few GMO corn that grew on his land.. They sued him out of business. Worse than Hitler’s orders. We all want to plant heritage tomatoes.. they are wonderful, and you have to cover them with cloth not to get GMO pollen on them..
      No one seems to have any power over them , just as we have no power over the drug companies. Will the next generation change this over-controlled period in time? All logic is disappearing.

    Here’s another Canadian checking in, from Alberta. I’m also watching this closely and cheering the Yes side on for the same reason Rob gives. Wishing you success!

    GMO pushers use the same tired arguments (and tactics, too, if you notice) over and over: their product is the same as the genuine article, it’s too expensive to produce the real stuff, on and on. They all turn out to be lies. Most people have such short memories, though – maybe caused by GMOs and/or other pollutants in the first place.

    Thank you for your efforts on this site, helping us to remember what we’ve lost and to keep working to get it back.

    im from Germany.. so what possible now. it was very close… still and sadly it got defeated. so in Germany the GREENPEACE is doing and have odne a GMO labeling itself and put all GMO Foods in a Guide, like a ZINE.

    Maybe this is necesaary in US as Well to get a BIG NGO like GREENPEACE to your side and start labeling your GMO FOODS and hand it out to the people.

    what your thoughts KEVING.. Greenpeace Germany was very sucessful with this. maybe its working in US as Well
