(NaturalNews) Let it be known that, in the interests of transparency, consumer knowledge and honest food labeling, NaturalNews has officially endorsed California's GMO labeling ballot measure. If you're in California, vote YES on 37, the "Right to Know" ballot measure.

The "Right To Know" ballot measure is simply about making sure food companies tell the truth about what's in their food. It allows consumers to make an informed decision about whether they wish to avoid GMOs or consume them. This measure adds essentially nothing to the cost of printing labels or the cost of food, because labels are already being printed for those foods, displaying nutrition facts, product names, and so on.

If you want to know what you're eating, vote YES on 37 and support food labeling honesty. After all, if we don't require food companies to honestly label their products, government regulators will never do so because they're in bed with the corporations! (USDA routinely conspires with Monsanto, as NaturalNews readers well know...)

The GMO industry doesn't want you to know what you're buying and eating

The GMO industry wants you to remain totally in the dark about whether your groceries are GMO. They even want to trick you by labeling them as "natural," hoping you'll be fooled into thinking that "natural" means "organic" (but it doesn't).

Many consumers, unfortunately, are tricked by this deception. But honest food labels would end that deception and force food companies to disclose the genetically engineered content of their food ingredients.

It is our right to know what we are eating. Anyone who would argue against that is, in essence, arguing for consumer ignorance and corporate deception in the marketplace.

NaturalNews continued to fight against the scourge of GMOs

For years, NaturalNews has fought to increase consumer awareness, raise money for worthy causes (along with our readers, we've donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Institute for Responsible Technology), provide editorial coverage of food safety issues and empower consumers with knowledge about GMOs. We are not a wealthy organization with deep pockets, but we have, with grassroots help, deeply impacted the increased awareness of this issue. I've personally even helped spread this message to a nationwide radio audience by hosting the Alex Jones Show and covering GMOs quite frequently.

NaturalNews has supported the Organic Consumers Association and Ronnie Cummins, the Just Label It campaign, and the recruitment of volunteers to get the petition onto the ballot. In these efforts, we join countless other natural health advocates, non-profits and consumer groups that are also pulling in the same direction on this issue. NaturalNews thanks Jeffrey Smith and many others who have provided leadership and advocacy that will bring us to a victory against corporate deception.

Victory is within our reach. Ballot measure 37, is passed, could be a milestone in food labeling transparency, safer food and informed consumers. This is why we supported it and why we continue to endorse it.

Here at NaturalNews, we absolutely, positively will not stop our efforts until GMOs are out of our grocery stores and off our plates. This is a fight for humanity, and there will be no surrender as we face off against true corporate evil.

Anyone who opposes GMO labeling is a fool

Finally, for the record -- and you can quote me on this -- anyone who opposes GMO labeling is a fool. They are playing right into the hands of the very same corporations that continue to poison our children for profit.

There is no more clear-cut issue on the ballot today. Regardless of whether you're a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian or Independent, to oppose ballot measure 37 is to align yourself with Monsanto and the terrible evils of the greed-driven food industry.

If you love the environment, opposing GMOs can help save the planet from genetic pollution. If you're into healthy foods, opposing GMOs is crucial to keeping insecticide poisons out of your diet. And if you love the free market and despise government intervention, remember that the free market is only truly free if consumers have free access to accurate knowledge about what they're buying! "Free market" should not mean "secret poisons in the food that you're not allowed to know about."

A free market, in other words, is not a "free-for-all" -- there have to be basic rules, such as accurate labeling. No sane person would argue, for example, that public companies should be able to sell their stocks without revealing their profit and loss numbers. So why are we being told to buy foods that have similar secrets about their make-up? Accurate disclosure is essential to the free market.

Let's win this one for humanity!

Voting YES on 37 is a vote for humanity. It is a vote for sanity in a world gone crazy. It is a vote for honesty in a world of corporate deception. Voting YES on 37 is a vote for the People -- all People -- but especially those people who depend on low-cost, non-organic foods for the bulk of their dietary intake. Those are the people who are being poisoned the most by GMOs.

So please join me, the Health Ranger, in supporting our right to know what's in our food. Vote YES on 37, and please also consider making financial donations to:

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
