Prop 37: The Right To Know What You're Eating

Isn't it funny how we live in the greatest country on the face of the Earth yet there has to be laws written to expressly say yes, the American people have a right to be allowed to know what they are putting into their bodies? I don't know about you but I find it so hypocritical that America is quick to frown on situations in other countries where the government is responsible for crimes against human rights, but turn a blind eye to the crimes against its own citizens. What's the difference you may ask?

The only difference is in the other countries the crimes are direct acts of violence, but in America the crimes are more egregious since they occur behind the scenes. We are being killed slowly in an agonizing death that robs us of every drop of life in our bodies. These killings aren't performed with bullets or bombs, in the streets or some makeshift battlefield; they're taking place in our homes and in our kitchens and the weapon of choice is food tampering.

It's a damn shame that someone like a Prop 37 even has to exist for the American people. It should be a no brainer that people have a right to know what's in the products they consume. They should at the least be given the choice to buy GMO products or untampered with products.

The bottom line is greedy corporate big wigs don't want the public to be aware of the horrific things they've been doing to our food supply FOR YEARS because it will take money out of their pockets. Californians will have a chance this November to stick it to the man sort of speak. Your voices will be heard loud and clear on Nov 6th when you vote 'yes' on Prop 37! Check out this video:



'Appearing on the state's November ballot, Prop 37 has been hotly contested with opponents of GMO labels pouring tens of millions of dollars into efforts to defeat the proposition.For agricultural giants like Monsanto -- one of the so-called "Big Six" -- passage of the ballot measure could greatly hinder its use of genetically-engineered crops.While the health effects of GMOs remain controversial, the PSA emphasizes that consumers should have the right to know what's in their food, just as nutrition labelslist fat, sodium and sugar amounts."If there's nothing wrong with GMOs, why not put it on the label," Matthews says in the video, emphasizing, "Made with GMOs!"'source: huffingtonpost.com
