Ask me anything   The Diary of Lydia Hearst

    Vote Yes on Proposition 37 for our right to know what’s in our food. Join the campaign:

    The very same corporations that brought us DDT and Agent Orange are now funding the No on Proposition 37 campaign trying to deny our right to know what’s in our food.

    Help fight back with the truth by donating today so we can keep airing our hard-hitting ad. Please make a donation today:

    The ad says it all — we’ve heard the false corporate health claims before. They said cigarettes were safe, DDT was safe, even that Agent Orange was safe. The two major donors against our right to know in California are Monsanto and DuPont — the two corporations most responsible for DDT and Agent Orange. We’ve heard from them - now let’s hear the truth!

    All Proposition 37 does is require clear labels letting consumers know if foods are genetically modified. We already have food labels showing nutrition, allergy information and other facts consumers want to know. This measure simply adds information telling us if food is produced using genetic engineering, which is when food is modified in a laboratory by adding DNA from other plants, animals, bacteria or viruses.
