Renewed Boycott Announced Against GMO Pushing Mega-Corporations

 In a little over a month, Californians will head to the polls to decide whether or not they want the freedom to know the true contents of the foods they buy at the grocery store. And during this final push to raise awareness about the importance of mandatory labeling of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), the Alliance for Natural Health - USA (ANH-USA) has announced a renewed boycott against the mega-corporations that are working behind the scenes to stop you from knowing whether or not your food contains bio-engineered ingredients.

Proposition 37, a Mandatory Labeling of Genetically Engineered Food Initiative, plainly states that raw or processed foods offered for sale to consumers must be properly labeled if they contain GMOs, and that no food products labeled "natural" can legally contain GMOs. Passage of this important ballot measure is the key to sparking GMO labeling laws nationwide, as it has the potential to drastically change for the better the way major food companies formulate their products.

Several major chemical and food corporations; however, have been actively injecting tens of millions of dollars behind the scenes to stop Prop. 37 from becoming law. And many of these corporations own smaller companies and brands that are marketed as organic or "natural" in health food stores all across the country. It is important in these final days before the November 6 election to stop buying these brands, and support only healthy and organic brands that are not tied to major corporations fighting GMO labeling efforts.
