It is getting very close to our November 6 election and with every negative political ad that I see on my television here in Oregon, I shudder to think that in California they are being blasted by biotech funded ads warning against voting yes on 37.

It appears to me that perhaps people don’t really want to know what goes on behind-the-scenes of the food industry, so they adopt the viewpoint of what appears to be the majority. Well the majority is usually whoever has the most money. Who do you think has more money – biotech giants like Monsanto and DuPont or independent organic food manufacturers?
Here is a quote from Michael Hansen, biotechnology expert for Consumers Union which publishes Consumer Reports.
