    LabelGMOS new TV ad - Have a look, share it with everyone!

    LabelGMOS new TV ad calls out Monsanto and Dow, the VERY SAME corporations that brought us DDT & Agent Orange...and now are promoting GE/GMO genetically modified foods with a campaign of outright lies and deception opposing Yes! on Proposition 37.

    Here's the link: Prop 37 TV Ad

    There are only 10 weeks left until Election Day. Please forward this to your friends and family members, so they have a chance to see it and keep the momentum going. We are also gathering volunteer funding to run the TV ad, please participate if you're able to. Thank you!

    Here are 8 reasons you want Prop 37 to pass, and why we're asking for your support.

    1. GMOs have never been proven safe. The FDA conducts no independent testing of GMOs, but instead claims that they are "not substantially different" from non-GMO foods.

    2. The biotech industry is not required to conduct long-term safety studies on GMOs, and it keeps researchers from conducting those tests by claiming the right to protect its patented seeds and technologies.

    3. GMOs are everywhere. Today, most non-organic US corn, soy, cotton and sugar beets - which are used in most of the sweeteners and additives used by food processors - are genetically engineered. So is the feed fed to the animals you eat. In fact, 75 - 85% of the processed food in your grocery store contains unlabeled GMOs.

    4. The companies who want you to believe GMOs are safe are the same ones who lied to you about Agent Orange and DDT.

    5. GE crops are responsible for super weeds and super bugs, soil degradation, and lack of diversity - which makes crops and humans more susceptible to disease.

    6. The only folks who don't want you to know what's in your food are huge corporations like Monsanto, Dow AgriScience, BASF and food conglomerates like Pepsi and Coca-Cola - who along with other biotech, pesticide and processed food manufacturers have donated nearly $33 million to defeat Prop 37.

    7. This is our best - and perhaps only - shot at labeling GMOs and ending Monsanto's monopoly of our food supply and destruction of our health and environment. Nineteen other states have tried - and failed - to get a GMO labeling law through the state legislative process. Prop 37 takes GMO labeling direct to the voters so Monsanto's lobbyists can't kill it.

    8. If this law passes in California, food manufacturers have admitted that it may as well be a national law. They won't want to put 'this product contains GMOs" on their labels, so they will reformulate their products. And if they reformulate for California, they may as well do it for all of their products.

    Early voting on Prop 37 begins on October 9. By November 6, this historic initiative will have passed or failed.

    Please help OCA, OCF, and our allies raise $1 million by Sept. 30 to pass this country's first mandatory GMO labeling law. You can donate online, by phone, or by mail.
