Election time is upon us and I just wanted to bring your attention to Proposition 37 which will be on the ballot this November. Now I know this is a bit heavier reading than our usual Rest Day Recipes but it’s well worth a read. It’s a chance to make your voice, as consumers, heard.
If Proposition 37 is approved by voters, it will:
Some of the arguments in favor of Prop 37 include:
Top Donor Supporters: Mercola Health Resources, Organic Consumers Fund, Nature’s Path Foods
Some arguments against Prop 37 include:
Top Donor Opponents: Monsanto, DuPont, DOW Agrisciences, Bayer Cropscience, BASF Plant Science
Keep in mind that I’ve only given you a tidbit of information. As always, we encourage you to be an informed consumer. Do your own research and make a well educated decision. However, as you do your research make sure to look at the small print at the bottom of the pages to see if the information is politically backed. There were more than a few articles that I found to be a bit suspect.
Listed below are links with more background information in support of and against Prop 37.
