We’re excited to announce our first ever diyNatural giveaway! Better yet, it will be benefitting the Yes on Proposition 37 Campaign, and was made possible by the web-based company, Cultures for Health.

This company, owned by a husband and wife team, is committed to making available products they believe will help others in their Real Food journey. Their business focuses on a simple goal:

Cultures For Health Goal: To create a website where people making a food change in their own lives could find all the products and information they need to be successful.

Wow! That’s awesome.

It’s their passion, livelihood, and ministry to see others succeed in making the transition to real, healthful foods. Their mission is such a breath of fresh air in a food industry that withholds information from consumers and is becoming increasingly corrupt.

Cultures for Health sells many of the supplies you will need for your Real Food lifestyle, including starter cultures, products for baking, sprouting, fermenting, and cheese making.

Yes on Prop 37

Proposition 37, a Mandatory Labeling of Genetically Engineered (aka GMO) Food Initiative, is on the November 6, 2012 ballot in California as an initiated state statute.

It’s also known as “The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act.”

As you may know, these GMO foods are showing up everywhere on store shelves and have been found to be harmful to health. Companies are getting away with sneaking GMO ingredients into our foods, without having to tell consumers. Genetically modified crops are an enormous issue that affects our food supply and environment worldwide.

What if you don’t live in California? This initiative affects all of us! Next month voters in California will be asked to make an important decision that will have a ripple effect. If Prop 37 passes, GMO labeling will be mandatory in California, and manufacturers will likely begin labeling for GMOs nationally. (It will look REALLY bad on their labels if they don’t stop using GMO ingredients!)

Considering these things, it’s easy to see how we’ll all reap the benefits of Prop 37 being signed into law.

Yes on Prop 37

The results of the November 6th vote in California will set a precedent for other states to follow suit, and for better transparency in the food industry.

Because of these things, we want to do everything we can to support its passing.

Not surprisingly, large corporations have put up over $30 million to oppose Prop 37. Companies like Monsanto, Coca-Cola, and Kellog’s (and many more) are doing everything they can to stop the passing of this initiative.

Sadly, the little guys who are in support of Prop 37 just can’t match those millions of dollars to help get the word out. So, it’s up to us to help chip in to raise the funds to help educate Californians about the dangers of GMOs. Commercials, billboards, and other ads will help get people out to VOTE YES on Prop 37 on November 6th.

    I believe in preventative health care… and when the studies show SO CLEARLY that GMOs are detrimental and damaging to health, I believe it’s our duty to run away from them as fast as possible.

  2. Mary says

    Putting wholesome food into our bodies is about as personal as it can get. All of us need to know the ingredients, nutrients, and important information like whether our food has been genetically altered or not. I am so glad to know that Prop 37 will be on the ballot.

  3. Kathy Sommerville says

    Supporting Prop 37 is the first and best step to take! “California leading the way to remove the poison from our food supplies!! Hang in there we are with you!

  4. Nicole says

    Thank you so much for getting this on the ballot!!! We need food companies to be held accountable to tell us what we’re being fed.

  5. Laura C says

    It is sad to me that there is even a need for GMO labeling but because there is, I think it is important that we have GMO labeling so that we can become informed consumers. It is time for America to stop hiding what’s in our food!!!

  6. Sheila says

    Letting Monsanto win is a detriment to farmer’s right as well as our own. Let them own our food and next thing you know they will be subjugating our bodies. As if they already haven’t. Protect our youngins!

  7. brooke says

    I really hope this law passes and we are able to know what’s in our food!! I wish the government did more to protect us!

  8. Lisa Y says

    I support Prop 37 because we need to know what our food contains! I want to raise healthy kids and not have them suffer from the unknowns that we are putting into our bodies.

  9. Jessie says

    I support Prop 37 because we should all be able to know what we put into our bodies and especially our childrens bodies! It just makes me sick to know what all is being put into our foods. It isn’t any wonder why there is so much cancer and food related allergies now a days!

  10. Tricia E. says

    I fully support Prop 37 because I want to know that I am feeding my family food that is free of GMO. The GMO label will make trips to the grocery more manageable and less time consuming. I try to feed my young family a diet free from gmo not only for their health but also for the health of my future grandchildren (even though that is still 25 years away!).

  11. Nikki says

    We are a “Clean” and unprocessed family – I think its awful that keeping my children healthy and teaching them proper eating means also educating them on GMO’s. We struggle daily to avoid the GMO’s and do our best – this should be a mandatory label!

  12. Victoria says

    I support Prop 37 because we should all have a choice to decide what we put into our bodies! And if this passes in California then it could very well go nationwide! …It is a shame that we have not done this already.

    • Dawn McMurray-Guard says

      I agree Victoria!

      I live in California where we’re aggressively pushing for passage of Prop 37, and hopefully the adoption of similar transparency laws throughout the country. And while the passage of Prop 37 is critically important for all of us who currently care about our environment and what substances we’re actually putting into our bodies, it’s also true for future consumers .

      People may not know or care right now about their right to full food product disclosure–many oppose the issue as too expensive–but I believe the majority will come to rethink their position in the future because of the safety gaps in our food chain that are exposed through our ‘normal’ news coverage. The public will begin to accept the dangers of GMO foods the same way we now accept the dangers of DDT, PBCs, and other substances that were one touted as “perfectly safe.”

      We must protect our right to know now, so everyone can vote in elections (and with consumer dollars) to promote the nature of food production we want our farmers/corporations to pursue in the future.

      Think of Prop 37 as the vanguard of protecting the future of all people, not just those who agree with us on election day. If GMO foods are allowed to go unlabeled into our food chain today it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to force full disclosure of labeling in the future.

      Please donate now whatever you are able–even $5 helps our mission of transparently labeling all substances that are used in the growth and manufacture of our foods. Only then will all consumers have the ability to make truly informed choices.

  13. Tracey says

    I support YES on Prop 37 and let everyone know how I feel about it. We have the right to know what’s in our food. How can we make the best choices if we aren’t given the opportunity to have the TRUTH? I am learning what companies are supporting NO on Prop 37 and am boycotting them (ie. Whole Foods, other organic brands that are owned by General Mills, Smuckers, etc…)

  14. Jennifer says

    I am a wife, mother, primary grocery shopper and chef in my home. I also suffer from multiple sclerosis. How in the world am I supposed to be able to make the appropriate choices to take care of myself and my family? There is much talk of rising healthcare costs, yet actions necessary to enable the public to make the healthy choices for themselves and those close to them have been slow to come. We absolutely have a right to know what we are putting into our bodies!
