TRUST US: Vote YES on PROP 37





To learn more about Prop 37 and Food & Water Watch's campaign to make GE Labeling the Law, and to help raise money to broadcast this public service announcement and others like it far and wide, visit www.voteyes37.org.

"Trust Us" is an ironic public service announcement by Consumer Advocates for Safe Food and Water, sponsored by Food & Water Watch, in support of Proposition 37, California's ballot initiative to label genetically engineered foods.

A diverse, all-star cast including Danny DeVito, Emily Deschanel, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson, KaDee Strickland and Kristin Bauer van Straten, impersonate scientists at leading biotech firms speaking their "subconscious minds" about why the general public should just trust them and not fight for mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods (GMOs).

1. I just filled in my ballot

And I voted Yes on 37. I am tired of all these fake organic companies. Organic labeling is a scam.

3. Organic farmers worked very hard

to get the USDA organic standards. They have to continuously fight to keep them as clean as possible. I did nothing in this struggle, but I thank those who did and continue to do.

5. Some are legit, some are lying

It's a marketing gimmick to sell the same product at higher prices. But this Prop is a good start. I am sure after the big boys get slapped down, they will go after the remaining "organic" farce. It will be payback.

7. I know someone who has an organic orange grove

and it is extremely challenging to be able to label and market fruit as "organic" legally. There are a lot of grove inspections and record verifications involved.

It is not simply a marketing gimmick, despite what one may presume.

2. I did. And I do not listen to anybody that tells me I don't need to know what I eat.

It is not their business to decide those things for me, ever.
