To Strive, to Seek, to Find, and Not to Yield

A lot of disappointing decisions were made last week, and one of the most disheartening was the failure of California’s Prop 37, the GMO labeling bill.   It just goes to show you how powerful Big Ag really is, and how far they’ll go to keep Americans in the dark about the foods they’re serving our families.  (NaturalNews claims that Prop 37 lost to voter fraud; as of Friday 11/9, over 3 million California votes still had not been counted, and yet Prop 37 was declared a failure early Tuesday night.)  While this legal battle was lost, the war is still on, and you can still fight for your right to be healthy.  Here (again) is a list of the companies that supported Prop 37:

While some of these companies are owned by larger, less ethical companies, these are some of the brands to look for if you’re avoiding GMOs.  Also look for the Non-GMO Project seal, because any product they endorse has gone through a rigorous and continual testing process.  Sadly, there still are no national guidelines for GMO ingredients, and so the Non-GMO project is the closest thing we have to a USDA seal.  So don’t give up, fellow health seekers!  This was a huge setback for the organic food movement, but the war is definitely not yet over.

Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
-Tennyson
