One of the things that I am most passionate about is food safety and the environment, which is why I took the natural route that I am on. CA Prop 37, the Right to Know Act, would be the first ordinance mandating genetically engineered crops label their food. You can learn more about the prop here, and if you're in CA I really encourage you to get involved. There is a lot of backlash against Prop 37, most from the agri-giant businesses which produce and use GMO's in their foods (looking at you Monsanto). You may be surprised, though, by some of the opposition. This piece points out that much of the food we consider to be nice and organic, is owned by the conglomerates which perpetuate eating crap to begin with. Interesting bedfellows all around, and it's sure to be an interesting fight in the next coming months.
