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.

  1. Sarah P. says

    Consumers certainly deserve to know what they are purchasing….everybody should know what they are putting into their bodies!!!

  2. Jason P says

    I don’t know how you could build a case against this legislation. I can’t think of a single reason why it should be passed. Well, besides the inconvienence it will cause the big food companies, poor them.

  3. Carol M says

    I fully support labeling GMO foods, I would not eat these items, so why should I not know they are there so I can eat another item that is the real deal.

  4. MaryCay Mcmullen says

    I support prop 37. I try to not buy foods that might have gmo ingredients- it can be hard since they are Not Labeled. We are a family with food allergies and autoimmune disease, the engineering of our food supply has got to stop!

  5. Leala C says

    I support prop 37. Consumers definitely have a right to know what is in the food we consume. I think many people would be shocked at how many GMO’s are in their food.

  6. Lori U says

    I will vote Yes on Prop 37. I live in California and have signed petitions, actively share this info with others and feel we have a right to know what we are eating, esp. if science has proven it can cause tumors in lab rats.

  7. deborah345 says

    I have already donated for the YES on prop 37 prior to finding your website. I use to live in CA and if I were there now certainly there would be one more vote for a YES.
    Trying to convince everyone I know to vote yes.

  8. Heather Jewett says

    I think it is insane that companies are allowed to put whatever they want in our foods and we just blindly eat them….Since when does it come to this? Why are we allowing are government to do this to us..We need Proposition 37…we should be told what we are consuming.. What about those that have allergies?

  9. Brooke A says

    As a newly wed it is has been very fun/interesting trying to figure out this whole cooking for two thing. The biggest issue we have is that we have so many food allergies between the two of us it becomes very difficult to cook a “simple” dinner. I know we would both love to have a food dehydrator because at least we could have some healthy snacks when we are out and about where there is nothing that either of us can eat.

    Prop 37 wise I am all for it!! I have for many years supported labels to say “contains…..” for that top 8 food allergies. I would love if all food for the masses was properly label so that future generations are healthy from the start….and hopefully there would be less food allergies!! 🙂

  10. Megan Gray says

    I support prop 37 because genetically modifying anything, especially our food, does way more harm than we can even imagine to us and the Earth.

  11. Sherie says

    I think it’s super important for people to be able to have easy access to the FULL ingredient list on ALL foods! I have one son with Asperger Syndrome and another one who possibly has ADD or ADHD and we found a way of eating that helped them to behave better and unfortunately we have been forced by their school systems to go off this “diet.” It makes me mad because now I am being forced to consider medicating them. If the food the schools are serving was labeled properly then I would be able to put up more of a fight.

    • Mary says

      We need to know the ingredients, nutrients, and important information as to whether our food has been genetically altered. I am happy that Prop 37 will be on the ballot.

  12. Amy says

    I support Prop 37 because we need to make dramatic changes in order to be a healthy people group. It’s hard enough making these changes in a country full of misinformation and political agendas. We try making better choices, but don’t even know what is in the food we buy! It took me years and years to realize that the health issues I was having were caused by poor nutrition from what is taught as a “healthy” diet. We need the information about what truly nourishes our bodies, AND the ability to find those foods!

  13. Cheryl says

    The toxicity of GMO seeds does not stop in the earth; once eaten the body becomes a GMO factory and habitat with potential to destroy and mutate cells.

  14. Heather says

    Hopefully CA will get the ball rolling for those of us on the east coast! It’s appalling how GMO foods have taken over our country.

  15. Amy says

    I support prop 37 by sharing information with friends and family. I pray that this will pass and people will become more aware of the dangers of GMOs. Knowledge is power! The only reason GMOs are even in our food is because of secrets and deception.

  16. Debbie Bishop says

    I support Prop 37. I don’t live in California but I do hope that this passes and the other states proceed to follow! We try very hard to eat organic. It is so difficult sometimes to know if what you are purchasing is labeled correctly. This will require labeling to know if the food is made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways.
    I do not want to purchase any foods that have been genetically modified!

  17. Elena says

    Prop 37 is the first of many steps we need to take to break the cycle of our food becoming less and less food- like. Consumers will always have the power to make choices but labeling has to be honest first! If there is nothing to hide then why do these weasels squirm so violently at the thought of being transparent?!?

  18. Melanie says

    I support prop 37 for our children and grandchildren to have clean, naturally grown food. Evil designs of men today are in it for the money and care nothing for our health. I have learned from websites like this and I have lost 44 pounds so far by eating healthy, fresh foods and portions. I am on the journey to cure my diabetes and high blood pressure. I used to take 90 units of insulin a day (and the doc wanted me on more), but now I am insulin free and my A1C is an entire point lower. I want to be healthy and want my family healthy.
