Dark vs. light

Don’t be fooled by the smoke and mirrors campaign being waged by the No on Initiative 522 special interests. The initiative is straightforward and written to be compatible with existing labeling laws. There are good reasons for not requiring certain things to be labeled. Meat, cheese, dairy and eggs? There are not genetically engineered animals. Pet food? Only food for human consumption is covered. Restaurants? They are not currently required to label their food, and this law will not change that.

It’s pretty simple: Do you want to know if there are genetically modified ingredients in the food you buy? Or do you prefer to trust your health to large food processors and multinational conglomerates that probably don’t have your best interests at heart.

Knowledge is power. The No on I-522 campaign would rather you be kept in the dark.
