"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

My Recommendation - Vote "YES" on California's Proposition 37

As a food and nutrition researcher, I am unequivocally urging California voters to cast a "YES" vote on Proposition 37, the initiative that will require that food producers label any and all foods that contain GMOs (genetically modified organisms). I was prompted to blog about this because many people are confused after having watched the ads against Prop 37.

In fact, just the other day a young mother in my church asked about it. She was somewhat perplexed by all the television ads campaigning against Proposition 37. The main contributor to these ads is Monsanto, the big chemical corporation that is responsible for most, if not all, of the genetically modified foods on our grocery store shelves.

If having GMOs in our food supply is a good thing, as Monsanto purports, you would think that they would want labels advertising that fact. Why then would they oppose labeling? (Fact is, GMOs are the worst thing that has ever happened to food.)

As a wife, mother, grandmother and consumer, I want to know about this issue. Are GMOs safe or not? Having grown up in the 1950s, I can tell you that the health of our country has changed dramatically since I was young. Most people were generally healthy then. The only allergies were seasonal. You never heard about food allergies. Now everyone is sick. Children struggle with food sensitivities like never before. These things were absent from the world I grew up in. Could GMOs be responsible?

To answer that question, I have embedded two films that should satisfy the most inquisitive mind. The first film is only a few minutes long and is somewhat informative. The second film is a one-stop information resource. It covers just about everything and then some. Please take some time to watch. You will not be sorry when you go to vote on November 6th.
