Not happy with the ‘No’ recommendation on Prop. 37

By From page A5 | October 31, 2012

EDITOR:

I was disappointed by the Mt. Democrat’s characterization of Proposition 37 as being “idiotic” and a “complete waste of time and money.” Who is the biggest money contributor to defeat Prop. 37? Monsanto. What does Monsanto do? They make the pesticide “Round-up” and they have patented seeds (corn, soybeans, alfalfa, etc.) that have been genetically modified to withstand being saturated with Round-up. These are termed “Round-up ready” and they’re disgusling. The plant(s) still soak up the pesticide but they don’t die. The poison ends up in your gut and can potentially cause tumors and multiple organ damage. This issue goes far deeper than just food labels. Do you really want to be kept in the dark about what’s in your food? A yes vote on Prop. 37 is the right thing to do for humanity. Please reconsider what’s really at stake.
