While it is widely known that organic farmers overwhelmingly support Proposition 37, the support of conventional or even GMO farmers has received less attention. It turns out they also believe we should know what we're eating.
Troy Roush grows GMO corn and soybeans in Indiana. Here’s what Troy says in FixFood’s excellent 90-second video:
Are your children eating Monsanto's GMO sweet corn? New research links GMO corn to a range of potential health risks, and a new ad released today by the Yes on 37 campaign illustrates that California children may be eating Monsanto's new GMO sweet corn product without their parents knowing it.
This summer, Monsanto began selling its first GMO sweet corn product in grocery stores such as Walmart. The sweet corn is engineered to withstand the weed-killer Roundup and also to contain an insecticide (Bt toxin) within the cells of the corn.
"This pesticide corn looks like regular corn, but it’s not,” says Susan Lang, a Sacramento mother who organzed a protest at Walmart over the corn. “In light of recent research linking genetically modified corn to potential health risks, I believe I have a right to know if the corn I’m feeding my children has been genetically engineered to contain pesticides. That’s why I support Prop. 37."
Right to Know supporter Food Babe attended the Democratic National Convention seeking information about GMOs from the nation's leaders. She spoke to everyone from senators to celebrities to civil rights activists. Their answers, or often lack thereof, are eye opening.
