    Default GMO Food Labeling - California Prop 37




    It didn't pass. Amazingly. I guess people really don't want to know and don't care what they are putting into their bodies. Thanks alot, Monsanto.

    I did too, there really is no downside to the measure, and I have no idea how people could vote against it. But to each their own. This affects my family very little, as my wife cooks most things from scratch and watches the ingredients like a hawk (and we rarely eat out). It's very granola, but very healthy. Unfortunately for most other people, they make no such effort.

    Was there much advertising and confusion on the ballet? Or do people think the MON thing is a hoax?

    I did my best to keep the local economy thriving in Chatsworth! I even got my wife on board. This state is just full of crazies.

    I saw a lot of advertising for against it, claiming that it would be costly and what not. I'm guessing some people had pause about exceptions for the labeling as well, but I didn't look into those very deeply.

    I saw none, but I'm not the best judge of that, since we watch no television in our home.

    The groups that were against it spent a crap ton of money in commercials and advertising, I heard the pro groups didn't/weren't able to spend much.
