If you don't live in California (then you need to move) or aren't interested in politics (because thinking is too hard), you might not have heard about this one. Prop 37 requires food manufacturers to disclose any genetically modified organisms (GMOs) included in the product.
The problem I have with Prop 37 is that it's fucking stupid.
No, I'm just kidding. It's not stupid. It's a bill. Bills are just pieces of paper. The people backing it are stupid.
I have several problems with 37. First and foremost, it's part of the whole "science is evil" fear movement sweeping the nation.
|Because scientists are always looking for a way to rule the world.|
Second, there is no evidence that any GMO has ever caused harm.
|Because seed companies are always looking for a way to rule the world.|
Third and finally, genetic modification isn't an ingredient, it's a method. If you labelled all the methods used in making a food, it'd look something like this.
