Sat Sep 1 2012 (Updated 09/06/12)Yes on Prop 37 March in Santa Cruz to Label Genetically Engineered Foods
Sat Sep 1 2012 (Updated 09/06/12)GMO-Free Right to Know! Santa Cruz Says "Vote Yes on Proposition 37!"
On August 24, supporters of GMO-Free Santa Cruz and Proposition 37 on the California ballot, marched and sang along Pacific Avenue to raise awareness about the proposition, and encourage people to vote in favor of it. Throughout the United States, people currently eat genetically engineered food, but they generally are not aware of it. The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, Prop 37 on the November ballot, would simply require food sold in retail outlets in California, such as grocery stores, to be labeled if it is produced with genetic engineering.
If passed in November, Proposition 37 would require food sold in retail outlets such as grocery stores (not including restaurants) to be labeled if it is produced with genetic engineering. In addition to this disclosure, genetically engineered foods would be prohibited from being advertised as 'natural.' These foods, proven to be unsafe for humans, animals and the environment, are referred to as Genetically Modified Organisms, or GMOs for short.
