Yes on Prop 37, No on GMO’s

 

Proposition 37 will be placed in the ballot for voting this year consisting of the strict labeling of genetically engineered foods of every kind. According to caright to know.org, labeling of these foods will provide consumers  to be aware of w hat has had been genetically altered in their meals.

The focus for this proposition is to allow consumers to know what they are eating, how these artificially flavored foods do to their health and the environmental problems that come in effect. Many, favor the proposition since it is a way in which one will be alert of the chemicals and bacteria that’s inserted in the DNA of plants and animals, but the consequences may come athuge costs for low-income families.

No prop 37.com stated, “Prop 37 is a deceptive, deeply flawed food labeling scheme that would add more government bureaucracy and taxpayer costs, create new frivolous lawsuits, and increase food costs by billions — without providing any health or safety benefits.”

Chabot Soccer coach Tony Igwe expressed that, “why do we need chemicals into our food? You don’t need to do it; it has to be natural. The naturality of it is that then you know what you are eating.”

Agricultural companies such as Monsanto have been against this proposition due to the exposure that they will have in allowing their consumers to know what they have been implementing in their products.

As explained by caright to know.org, the environmental issues that address the use of chemicals is by increasing the use of pesticides, biodiversity loss, the emergence of bugs that is threatening millions of farmland acres and the contamination of crops.

As consumers, you have the right to know what is in the food we eat; the choice is yours, so make it count.
