On November 5th, Washington State will either approve or reject a law that would require manufacturers to display labels that contain genetically modified foods. If this law passes (Initiative 522), Washington would be the first state in the US to require GMO labeling. Large food companies like Monsanto and DuPont teamed up to raise almost 22 million to promote anti-labeling!
The Grocery Manufacturers Association = the biggest donor for promoting anti-labeling, making up half of the 22 million raised.
PepsiCo Inc = spent $2,352,965 against I-522
Nestle = spent $1,528,206 against I-522
Coca Cola Company = spent $1,520,351 against I-522
General Mills, Inc. = spent $869,270 against I-522
ConAgra Foods, Inc = spent $828,251 against I-522
What do you think about GMO labeling? Is it right for US citizens to know where their food is coming from?

I was just on http://www.buzzfeed.com (awesome website by the way!) and happened to come across a link to 12 fast food items that have a disgusting amount of ingredients.
Here’s a quick breakdown for you..
So, you might want to think again when you go into a fast food restaurant! Even though something may be lower in calories or look like a healthier choice, look closer at the ingredients listed on a food product. Do your research. This is your body, your child’s body. We only get one body to live in. Why wouldn’t we feed it the nutrients it needs? Don’t give in to temptation and advertisements. Stick to simple, fresh, wholesome foods. We don’t need all of this “fake” food to survive.
