Don’t be deceived by biotech smokescreens

The biotech industry has pooled together $35 million to “persuade” voters to vote “No” on Prop 37 in California. “Persuade” is the nice way of putting it. Some call them deceptions, some call them outright lies.

What I find very sad is that the system allows vested interests to advertize and thus gain votes by spending money — buying votes. So it ends up not about what is best, but who has the most money.

Two of the things that the No people are saying is that food will cost more and farmers will be hurt if labeling happens. I would call these downright lies.
