Celebrities For the Win: Yes on 37!

Kudos to conscientious celebrities rushing forward to support our right to know what's in our food. They are using their star power to show support for Proposition 37 with words, videos and social media messages.  Celebrities For The Win!

photo-gwyneth-paltrow-588x441.jpgGwyneth Paltrow: "Voting YES on California's Proposition 37 will require all genetically modified foods to be labeled, something that's currently not done in the US but is done in more than 50 other countries. This means you'll have a choice between buying an ear of corn that's been genetically modified and one that's not. It's just a label! And it's just freedom of information, after all."

The LA band Maroon 5, longtime proponents of Prop 37, tweeted this note of support.

@Maroon5: "On Election Day we’ll support the right to know with a  vote to ."

Singing legend Barbra Streisand expressed her belief of our right to know in this tweet.

@BarbraStreisand: "Everyone has right to know what they’re eating! Join  in labeling GMO foods. Please RT. Barbra."

Actor Charlie Sheen showed us some love. You know what that means...Winning!

@charliesheen: "Say NO to GMO!! Why are we eating genetically modified food? Why are the bees vanishing? You have a right to know..! CA VOTE YES ON PROP 37!"

@charliesheen:  "CA VOTERS you have a right to know what you're eating! Whether you support the use of GMO's or not... YOU deserve to KNOW YES on prop 37 RT"

Why Liberals and Conservatives Should Support Proposition 37

Guest blog by Paul Matteucci

37.jpgCalifornia’s Prop 37 requires food makers to label most food products, when they contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).   Now, the word “organisms” is unfortunate, as it conjures up notions of super bacteria, manufactured with benign intent, but possessing some latent quality that devastates mankind.  And, in fact, that is what some GMO detractors believe could happen.  Others want more testing and regulation; and still others just want to know what’s in their food.  Many liberals simply don’t trust the suppliers of GMO products, mostly big agriculture companies, to do what is best for customers, over what is best for their earning reports.
