On a personal note, there’s something amusing about having Kristin Bauer van Straten keeping with her True Blood character, telling me that my “puny little head would explode” if I knew what was really in my food.
America Lagging Behind

They aren’t the first to question genetically modified organisms’ safety for human consumption or production in the environment. GMOs have been linked in numerous studies to massive tumors, weight gain, organ disruption, infertility, and the development of resistant weeds and pests.
Monsanto and the US Government
America, a supposed pioneer of innovation and social freedoms, is lagging behind the almighty dollar that the likes of Monsanto and Dow grip. And no wonder—our own government is in bed with these multi-billion-dollar private industries. Take a look at this graphic showing Monsanto’s revolving door with the US government. No wonder the Food and Drug Administration deleted 1 million signatures from “Just Label It,” a GMO labeling campaign.
If you live in California, remember to vote Yes on Prop 37 for your right to know if your food contains GMOs. This decision could shake the rest of America, helping to lead to the future labeling of all GMOs across the nation.
