Anti Prop 37 Donor List

Look at the amount of money pulled into ‘Anti Prop 37 ’ campaign efforts from Big Phama and farmer Corporations, the message is clear, they are not protecting small farmers and consumers.

The questions for the voters are ‘Do we have a Right to know what’s in our foods?’, and ‘ Do we want to consume  foods would harm our health? ’

We could not labels every item on the market, but it is a good start and may not be the last.
