Initiative 522 is a bill that Washingtonians are voting on right now (Nov 3, 2013)to require labeling (and "non labeling" really) of genetically modified food. I've just been fed up with the commercials and ads that I've been seeing. After seeing Ben and Jerry's promoted facebook advertisements I sat down and recorded a podcast. I am against i522 and the podcast explains why. Ben and Jerry, finally decided to start making sure they're not using any GM food. Surprisingly they waited until 2013 to make that happen. Well the hypocrisy gets pretty thick. Ignorance is no excuse for voting based on party lines. If you live in Washington State, read the bill or listen to this podcast. Ben and Jerry, if you're reading this, I'm glad you guys started to actually practice what you preach... how many years have you been using GM ingredients and not been worried about your customers? Here's the full video of the two sound clips I play in the show. Video: Jerry Greenfield's support of I522 Yes we have the right to choose what we eat. It's a fairly well understood principle in American culture that we need to be aware of what we're ingesting. However, once the government starts getting involved you need to look into what it is they're actually doing. There are always unintended consequences when new legislation is enacted and this bill will create a multitude of problems. It's all in the podcast and for now I'm a podcaster and not so much a blogger so just listen to the audio and thanks for paying attention to issues that matter to all of us in this country.
