You’ve seen movies like Super Size Me, Food Inc, and Forks Over Knives and know how a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is thought to be the best form of preventative healthcare. Maybe you’ve even begun to make the shift at the grocery store looking for natural foods to feed yourself and your family. But beware: knowing that there is a shift in the consumer market towards natural, organic foods, many corporations have deceptively labeled their packaging to trick consumers into buying their Genetically Engineered “natural” product.
On November 6th, Californians will be voting on Prop 37 which, if passed, will require food manufacturers to label raw or processed foods sold to consumers if they contain genetically modified ingredients and prohibit the use of the label “natural” on foods containing these GMOs.
