California residents had the opportunity to vote on a proposition that would require disclosing of GMO products this past election. Well, it didn’t pass but it was a close race. I’m sad it didn’t pass but I feel better knowing how many people support having it disclosed. Genetically modified foods are a huge contributor to the sicknesses many people die from. I wrote an article about how GMO and Processed Foods are Taking over our Life. I encourage you to read it if you are unaware of what we’re putting in our bodies.
Now that the GMO prop made the ballot, we get to see all the companies that support it and all the companies that are against it. Right now I’m focused on food companies that could care less about what they’re putting in our bodies. GMO can be found everywhere but I’m having an overwhelming experience with just food at the moment.
Many well know food manufacturers are behind the no labeling movement and honestly it makes me sick. They are all the companies that offer the best prices and coupons on food. As a couponer, I was getting free to super cheap food from these companies. Now that I know what their type of food does to me, I don’t want it. I don’t care how cheap it is. I can’t even get myself to give it to others because it’s so deadly.
Here’s a breakdown of all the food manufacturers that want to continue using GMO in their food without labeling it. The $$ amount shows how much money they spent to oppose GMO labeling.
You can see a full list of companies that support GMO labeling on the Yes on Prop 37 website. I will never buy from the companies pictured above. To view more about healthy living, visit my Healthy Living page.

I was so sad that California let us down. There are some websites out there that also list foods that are GMO free and help you to read labels. It's pretty much a guarantee if it has soy or corn it don't eat it! Or sugar that is not cane sugar.
