“Yes,” I want to know if a food I’m purchasing to put into my body has been genetically modified, don’t you?

Think about this one…Will Grapegrowers and Consumers Accept GMO Wines?

Or this one: Western Farm Press ~ From the Australian Broadcasting Corporation: After ten years of laboratory trials, an Adelaide plant scientist has developed genetically modified grape vines that are resistant to mildew.

Okay… think about it… If 10 years have been spent studying this, do we really think we can tell them to bite the costs? And that, my friends, is the real push behnid what’s going on…

The reason I want to know if my food has been genetically modified that is that I won’t purchase an altered food… I don’t eat fast food, for example. I’d rather pay a bit more for slow foods that have nature’s health benefits… pure and simple. My body is my temple, and it’s derserving of the best fuel available for me to live a long, heathy life.

I have a RIGHT TO KNOW…. and so do you…

I remember the days when it was discovered that kids who consumed foods with red dye showed increased levels of hyperactivity and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. These dyes had already been approved by the FDA… Some kids bouncing off the walls, and red dye had been found to be the culprit.

We had to fight to get that onto a label. Now, moms with kids who are allergic to this synthetic substance have the ability to know ahead of time what they’re getting into… Thanks to perseverence by consumers.

WHO’s paying for those millions of dollars in advertising; i.e., who’s against you knowing that GMO foods are in what you’re buying… and please note the chemical companies?

And… How about all of the newspapers who want you to vote “No?”

Cash strapped newspapers + advertising dollars = decisions being made NOT in your best interest.

As a former radio broadcaster, I was first introduced to the power advertisers in media, in the 1980s.

I was working at a radio station. One of my duties was to produce (and pre tape) Modern Health segments; 30 second snippets to make lives healthier. One would air each morning for about 30 seconds… like an advertisement. I produced one Modern Health segment on  how bad soda is for anyone’s health. There’s almost one teaspoon of sugar per ounce of soda. (One can of soda a day = 10 pounds of weigh for the consumer.)

Equated: 8 ounces of soda = 7 teaspoons of sugar. The segment was pulled by the general manager, who was also the sales manager…


A major soda company was a regular, big money advertiser.

The feedback I got from this example taught me a long time ago about the power of advertisers. So, I’m NOT surprised about newspapers jumping on the “No” bandwagon, spreading the fear that we’re going to have to pay a bit more money for our food.

Hey, I don’t mind spending money on really good food. Some of us prefer to only use high test fuel in our bodies… That’s my right, and it’s my right to know if food has been genetically modified.

Remember, people… We were told during the Vietnam War that Agent Orange was only a defoliant (not the nerve gas that it is), and our government would be spreading it in Vietnam to expose the Viet Kong. Has anyone, like me, lost family and friends who were connected to Agent Orange in Vietnam or Desert Storm?

The same chemical company who brought you Agent Orange and Roundup is also genetically modifying our foods… And, there are a ton of lobbiests connected to all of this big business.

Has a corporation ever loved you back?

Don’t you have a right to know?

I think so… If you agree, vote “Yes, I have a right to know” on Prop 37.
