Genetically Modified Food Fight Fails!

Proposition 37, Requiring the labeling of genetically modified “food’,  failed to be approved by California voters by a small margin in the 2012 election.  Foods that may poison you and your children will be on your table,  unknown to you!

It is a tragedy that greedy unethical companies like Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and Dupont  have kept the right to deceptively poison our population.  How could this happen?   See the inserts below to understand and perhaps see the dangers of being a Plutocracy,  which many have now claimed is America’s new form of  government.
