I never do this on my blog, ask for anything. I started this blog to teach people who don’t know how to cook. I try to share everything I make, along with techniques, and I try to describe it as straightforwardly as possible. I love food. I cook every day. I even love grocery shopping. It’s fun to look at all the beautiful packages and colorful labels.
So here comes the asking part. Please donate anything you can to Yes on 37, the prop that would require labeling of GMO food. About 70 other countries label GMO’s. It’s a CA prop, but it will affect the entire USA, because big food companies aren’t only going to label food sold in CA, that wouldn’t be cost effective. The labels will change on all food, all across the US. This is an issue that crosses party lines too. So whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, your GMO food will be labeled.
Prop 37 will essentially decide if Americans are going to continue to be lied to about GMO corn, which is in everything. It’s a corn seed made in a lab, and has been genetically spliced with BT, which is a bacteria used as an insecticide. BT causes the insects stomach to explode, killing it when it eats the corn. This corn from Monsanto has been hiding on our store shelves for years, unlabled. It”s in soda pop, sugary cereals, any thing with corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, corn sugar, tortillas, etc. You might be eating GMO corn, unless you purchase strictly organic food and food labeled “non GMO”. But how do you know what you’re buying if it’s not labeled?
Monsanto and BIg Food Corporations want Americans to be kept in the dark and just continue to buy their Frankenfood. They have a commercial out now with a Doctor from San Diego saying how 37 is misleading and will cost you more for your food. She’s a charlatan. They print labels every day. Does it cost you more when they print *New and Improved!* ? No. Monsanto doesn’t want you to know what is in that bag of chips because you’ll be too grossed out to buy their “Round Up Ready” food anymore.
Thanks for supporting real food!
