This coming November 4th, Colorado residents will have the chance to vote on Prop. 105 to label GMOs, and Monsanto isn’t wasting anytime trying to defeat the growing tide of opposition to their non-labeling campaigns.
The NO on 105 committee has raised almost $10 million since Sept. 24, with Pepsi Co. and Kraft Foods also giving more than $1 million each. This group has begun running TV ads against the initiative this week.
In the attempt to discredit those who want to know exactly what’s in their foods, Monsanto is running campaigns saying that GMO labeling will cause a rise in food prices, but in the 64 countries that have required labeling, there hasn’t been a spike at all. This flies in the face of the claims made by Monsanto since the agricultural pricing history of so many places is a far better determinate of future events regarding GMOs than their loose propaganda based on speculation.
