Monsanto is spending millions to frighten and mislead voters. Dig Deeper….Proposition 105 is about transparency and consumer choice.

3 Reasons to Vote YES on Prop 105!
This is about informed consumer choice: It’s a label, not a ban. There is no requirement that farmers change their practices. The only requirement is that food be labeled just like it already is for many of our trading partners around the world.
Labeling works and does NOT lead to a spike in food prices. Consumers Union released a report that estimates the cost to consumers for labeling genetically engineered foods at just $2.30 per year. That’s less than a penny per day.
Coloradans should not be left in the dark. Current non-GMO and organic labeling is voluntary and covers less than 10% of available food products. According to Consumer Reports, many “Natural” products contain significant GMO content. Proposition 105 is a reasonable first step in Colorado and will cover 70% of foods found on Colorado shelves.
