The California proposition on food labeling was denied by voters last Tuesday. This does prove that the Big corporations tactics to spend nearly 45 million in opposition was completely effective. No new labeling requirements. If only it were over.
This article takes a main focus to point out that yes, the proposition failed, but it also created a national awareness to the GMO in food issue. This will undoubtedly cause change to the future, just as Michael Pollen's "Omnivore's Dilemma" changed the way we thought of food. It will be extremely interesting to see if this sparks change amoungst consumers, and whether or not the government will step in in terms of regulation and testing.
