Prop 37

Prop 37: Labels for GMOs?

Sep 28, 2012

Today, many of the foods we eat come from Genetically Modified Organisms such as modified corn, wheat, and soy to make them grow more productively.  But do consumers have the right to know if the food they are buying at the grocery store contains GMOs? This November, voters are being asked to decide if GMOs and foods that contain GMOs should be labeled as such in retail outlets. We take up the pros and cons of Proposition 37.


On today's Your Call, we’ll have a debate about Proposition 37. If it passes, California would become the first state in the country to require GMO labeling. Proponents have spent $3M to support labeling law, while multinationals like Monsanto and Pepsi have contributed over $28M to keep GMO labels off of food packages. Where do you stand? Join us at 10am PST or leave a comment here. What questions do you have about GMOs?  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
