Regarding the article "Safety of genetically modified foods is debated in California," written by Laurel Rosenthal of the Sacramento Bee, a vote for "yes" on Proposition 37 in California helps get our country one step closer to its people being more well informed on what we are consuming. It may be that there is no definitive evidence yet that genetically modified foods are dangerous to human health, but every consumer has a right to know what's in their food. Enough speculation has come up with the safety of genetically modified foods and its affect on people's health that people should have the right to make an informed choice. People opposed to Proposition 37 claim that the labeling of genetically modified foods would be implying that there is a warning about health effects when no such evidence has been produced. With that said, you can look at the numbers for European countries and how they made the change to mandatory labeling of genetically modified foods and how it had such a small effect on the consumer's decision making. The larger argument in Proposition 37 in California is not to prove anyone wrong about whether genetically modified foods are a cause for concern for people's health, but rather that the consumer has the right to know what they are putting in their bodies and where it came from.
