By now most of us know of the enormous issue surrounding GMOs, GMO labeling, and California’s Proposition 37.
Proposition 37, a bill that would require all genetically modified foods to be labeled in California, has gained tremendous support from the public.
But while an overwhelming number of individuals want nothing more than for GMO foods to be labeled, others are doing everything in their power to stop such a bill from existing.
It isn’t surprising to see biotech giants like Monsanto go against Proposition 37 and GMO labeling, but do you have any idea who else is fighting Prop 37?
Who is Really Supporting Prop 37? More Importantly, Who is Really Against it?
On November 6, 2012, voters will decide if California’s Proposition 37 will be the first bill to require the labeling of genetically modified foods.
About 18 states have made similar attempts, fighting for the labeling of GMOs, but nothing has even come close to Prop 37.
Since Proposition 37 came to light, it has received significant backing both from the public and various entities.
A recent poll shows that GMO labeling is so desired that the pro-labeling side has a 3-to-1 advantage.
Organic leaders supporting Prop 37 have contributed approximately $2.6 million so far, with leaders like Dr. Mercola, Organic Consumers Association, Nature’s Path, and Lundberg donating the most.
But even as supporters rise up and speak out, those fighting GMO labeling aren’t even close to throwing in the towel.
