Tuesday's editorial about Proposition 37 is quite biased and shows ignorance instead of education.
I think the editorial board should do more digging before offering an opinion and look at both sides, not just ag-related sources funded in large part by big pharma and bio-tech companies.
A professor at Tufts University noted that most of the claims in the article were pure fiction, and when questioned about his facts the UC professor did not even assert or justify his false claims.
Maybe the editorial board should go back to Merced College and take classes to learn what critical thinking and writing are.
Many farmers are supporting this move. Just as families can still choose to purchase genetically modified items, they are informed. Families have made it clear in their purchasing choices with organic consumption increasing even in a dwindling economic time. We deserve to know what is in our food.
Some may have their reasons. I, however, have two children with food allergies and I can never be sure that the amino acid reaction of a genetically modified food is part of the database that is supposed to be checked or is labeled appropriately before human consumption is allowed.
