8. I-522 is just the tip of the Iceberg


Why are these International corporations spending so much money to defeat I-522, itís because itís not just about Labeling our foods its all the about the creation and production of GMO foods. If you can get access to a movie called ďGenetic ChileĒ I would recommend you watch it before you make a decision about GMO foods. I know if it passes it does not solve the real problems I believe GMOs might cause us all in the future but it gets it out in the open for further discussion.

There is so much we donít know about the safety or risks of GMO foods and anyone who says thatís not true is only basing their opinion on hearsay information. For myself I would love to learn more about specific scientific studies that would prove it either way. The government hasnít performed a single detail study that I can find that can be referenced but relied on the word of major corporations as to their safety to give their approval.

I agree there are two sides with every major issue but when one side will spend so much money to influence an election to stifle an honest discussion of the concerns some people have about GMOs. Then you need to ask yourself why and until I can determine that I am very reluctant to cave in on their view on this matter. Understand if we learn later a law like I-522 was unwarranted we can remove it but once you allow the introduction of GMOs into every aspect of our food supply and we learn there are problems there are experts who are concerned there is no turning back. You need to see this movie.
