Proposition 37 in California - Vote YES for Labeling of GMO Foods

Get the FACTS about CA Prop 37 You Have a Right to Know What’s in Your Food. Vote YES on Prop 37 & SHARE This Video on Social Media All Proposition 37 does is require clear labels letting consumers know if foods are genetically modified. We already have food labels showing nutrition, allergy information and other facts consumers want to know. This measure simply adds information telling us if food is produced using genetic engineering, which is when food is modified in a laboratory by adding DNA from other plants, animals, bacteria or viruses. Much of the World Already Requires Labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods More than 40 countries with over 40% of the world’s population already label genetically engineered foods, including the entire European Union. Even China labels genetically engineered foods. California should take the lead on this important issue in the United States. What do these countries know that we don’t? A Simple Proposition for California in 2012 The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act is simple: The initiative would simply require food sold in retail outlets to be labeled if it is produced through genetic engineering. Just Like Nutrition Facts We didn’t use to label foods with calorie or nutritional value information, but we do now, and most consumers use this information every day. The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act simply requires food producers to also label food that contains

  1. Too bad phytochemical antioxidants (ie, anything that’s not vitamin E or C, ALA, CoQ10, glutathione etc) have never been shown to have any benefits in vivo. In fact, only 5% of them are even absorbed and even then they’re fast-tracked to the liver for excretion (and treated as a contaminant). They only benefit of these are probably from their hormetic effect. Not to mention the three most powerful antioxidants in vivo are glutathione, ALA, and CoQ10, all from animal foods. Biologiy=/=in vitro

  2. Love the suspense at the end… Almost could have used a drum roll for the best animal based source of antioxidant – Well done!

  3. Awsome Dr. Greger!! Thank you!

  4. Interesting, but the vocal fry of this guy’s voice is a bit difficult for me to listen to.

  5. It’d be wonderful if you could post your questions to this specific video on nutritionfacts. org. This way lots of people benefit from the response, and I can actually provide you with links (which I can’t do on Youtube)!

  6. Did you and the authors of this study not look at the super anti oxidant Carnosine?
    What about taurine? Retinol from meat sources is far more easily absorbed than from plant sources, isn’t that a potent antioxidant? Seems this study’s numbers are way off.

  7. Shout out to All Californians…I am proud of you!!…help the rest of us in other states in the USA, by setting precedence and vote Yes on 37!

  8. Brandon, unfortunately you will discover over 80% of food in conventional chains, and now Whole Foods has GMO. Its rampant  and very dangerous to eat GMOs.

  9. The rise of healthiness!

  10. No more monsanto scumbags and their cancer causing GMO shit.

    case closed

  11. It will force them to change. 

  12. Fear-mongering is the staple food of ignorant people. Research the truth. Labels are useless when 100% of the food supply has been contaminated for decades. This is another plot to tax people through deception. Another “paper or plastic” scam. When both paper and plastics bags were offered, both were free. Now that plastic bags are banned, you must pay for paper. What a crock-pot full of it. Organic is the biggest Urban Myth ever!!! VOTE NO on 37!!

  13. Yes – Thank You! – here is another piece of media in favor of this important measure.

  14. A vote for Prop 37 is a vote for all prokaryots everywhere. Stop the needless death of native plants. Up with plants, I say!

  15. I want to know… kids want to know…..its control by food… on the right side of history…..

  16. I’m voting no on 37. It’s nothing more than a Witch Hunt

  17. Frank,
    Agreed! Will they ever follow that age-old idea of supply and demand and wake up to the wave of consumers that WANT to buy food in alignment with a healthy body & healthy planet?? Has that old model died away and left us with this “buy what we say you can buy and don’t ask questions or we will buy your leaders into submission” model?

  18. From the Huffington Post, “If a company like Kellogg’s has to print a label stating that their famous Corn Flakes have been genetically engineered, it will be the kiss of death for their iconic brand in California…and everywhere else,” AMEN TO THAT! I’ll vote yes.

  19. If the big corporate food and seed companies are so very convinced that there’s no problem with their GMO Frankenfood, then why are they trying to hide their technology? It’s a label… Get over it.

  20. If Proposition 37 passes, California would become the first state in the nation to require new labels on GMO Foods from breakfast cereals to sodas to tofu. If you love California like I do… Vote YES on Prop 37!!!!

  21. Here’s the TRUTH: It’s a simple label. We have a right to know what’s in our food. This is how our country is supposed to work – we are free to make informed choices. Proposition 37 will help us exercise that freedom about what we eat. I am urging you to vote yes on Prop. 37.

  22. I agree with “Emily”. Prop. 37 isn’t a ban; it’s a label. It’s simply saying: Let’s give consumers information so we can choose for ourselves whether or not we want to eat genetically engineered foods.

  23. The negative comments are obviously put here by Monsanto. BOOOOOOOO to Monsanto. Did you see that they put in $4.2million to fight against Prop 37? What are they hiding?

  24. Thanks for this awesome video. It states the truth and the commentary from your interview subjects was fair and honest. What I hear is that, “We have a right to know.” I totally agree with them. I want to know what I’m feeding my family. I hope you do too.

  25.  VOTE YES ON PROP 37!!!!!!!

  26. u guys have my support 37!!!!! so cal baby !!

    Thank you OGMuch1- every vote is one step closer to Americans having the same free choice about GMOs that 49 other countries see fit to give their citizens.

  28. It’s a shame that the big grocery and food companies are spending so much money against this campaign. It’s JUST a label. All this initiative is about is simply putting a label on GMO foods. Seems pretty straight forward and simple.

  29. I want to know what foods are GMO when I’m shopping at the grocery store. I’ll vote Yes.

    I agree. To see a simple farmer who’s pig stopped giving birth after he switched their feed to GMO corn, search YouTube for “Farmer feeds GMO corn to his pigs: they all become sterile”. Mean anything for humans?? I don’t know but I certainly don’t want to be experimented on until the evidence is in either way.
