A large number of people showed their interest in saying “yes” to Proposition 37 that was supposed to let people know about what is in their food. Though the proposition failed at the ballot box in
through the combined effort of several multinational firms whose only aim in
life is to keep people sick, the campaign was able to achieve a high level of
awareness among the public regarding the genetically modified ingredients in
food. Natural News reports that
the people of California
have lost the battle, but they are preparing for a larger war. California
There was an all round effort from companies like Monsanto, PepsiCo, Coca Cola, General Mills, Bayer, DuPont and Kellogg's to spoil the campaign for Proposition 37. Millions of dollars had been invested in a counter campaign which advocated defeating the proposition, Natural News reports. It is clear that these companies never wanted people to know about what they were eating as it would only put a halt to their booming business as most of their products harbored and still harbor harmful chemicals. These companies also took to fraudulence to safeguard their interests and complaints in this regard have already been filed with the FBI.
Though the billion dollar companies managed to suppress Proposition 37, Natural News opines that there is a long way to go. People have become hugely aware of what they are eating as many reputed organizations like Nature’s Path, Amy’s, Dr. Bronner and many more companies extended their support for the cause. The issue of GMO labeling has gained much space in the minds of Americans who are not ready to retreat with a single defeat. Such campaigns will gain even more impetus in the future no matter how hard the multinational companies try to suppress them.
