The biotech industry is working to prevent mandatory labeling for foods with genetically engineered contents...
The biotech industry, led by Monsanto, will soon descend on the state of Washington to try its best to defeat I-522, a citizens’ ballot initiative to require mandatory labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered (GE) ingredients. Voters should prepare themselves for an onslaught of discredited talking points, nonsensical red herrings, and outright lies designed to convince voters that they shouldn’t have the right to know what’s in the food they eat http://www.salon.com/2013/04/23/monsanto_doesnt_want_you_to_know_what_youre_eating_partner/

I deal with this daily. It is so important to know what we are eating. Clear labeling is very important, but I don't want the government regulating anything else. They keep messing enough up. I just refuse to buy something that is not clearly labeled or that causes a reaction in my family. Power of the Pocketbook, and my voice.
