(NaturalNews) Much to nobody's surprise, Monsanto, DuPont and other big corporations that stand to lose money are putting big bucks into the "No" on Prop. 37 campaign. In fact, they've already spent over $34 million on their highly manipulative and, in some cases, even fraudulent ads. Their goal is to scare voters into doing what is in their best interest by unleashing what can be described as a massively deceptive campaign.

Manipulative ads

The campaign's commercials feature farmers, professors and the like all telling us that Prop. 37 is a bad idea. There is no doubt that the featured speakers are just pawns working for the giants. But to the average person who may not be following this issue very closely, the authoritative speakers add validity to the cause. After all, if a highly educated and respected professor thinks this is a bad idea, it must be so, right? One of these ads in particular was forced to be pulled off the air after it was found falsifying the credentials (as well as other facts) of a so called Stanford University professor.

The very weak basis of the campaign

Their ads claim that the bill would increase food costs for families by over $400 dollars per year, when in fact, if you're not purchasing GE foods, your grocery bills won't change at all. For those who will continue to purchase GE foods, there is no doubt that the figure is a gross exaggeration. They also point out that it's "absurd" that certain products are exempt. These products include things like cows' milk, beer and liquor. The reason they are exempt is that there are no GE versions of these foods.

Human arrogance

At this point, we have more than enough data that clearly identifies many of the potential health risks and side effects that can be caused by genetically modified foods. It is likely that the risks we know about are just the tip of the iceberg. In years to come, it's probable that we'll find GMOs to cause new breeds of diseases that don't even exist yet. It is only through human arrogance that we believe we can alter the DNA of something and expect to know all of the consequences.

The bottom line

It is vitally important that California approves this proposition. It is the first step in a long battle of doing away with GMOs for good. Once passed in California, the law will likely quickly spread to other states. Once that happens, it's just a matter of getting everyone educated so they will want to steer clear of GE foods. The bottom line is that we have a right to know what's in our food. This is a great chance for the people to send a message to the corrupt corporations.
