Not Knowing What We Eat–Thanks, Monsanto

Monsanto recently contributed $7 million to defeat California’s Proposition 37 – a bill that would require labeling of genetically engineered foods
Many other companies, including Dupont, Dow Agro, PepsiCo, and even some of the largest member-donors to the Organic Trade Association, have also contributed millions to the effort to defeat labeling. Currently, $34.5 million has been raised in opposition, compared to $4.1 million in support of Proposition 37
Understanding how Monsanto manipulates the system is crucial to understanding why Americans are not allowed to know if their food has been genetically engineered by simple labeling, as around 50 countries around the world already do, including Russia, China and the entire EU. Bad news for US.
