In the shadow of Proposition 37's defeat maybe we can have a real conversation. Angry, uninformed discussion based on fear mongering from both sides detracted from a real issue-- how do we provide complete information about food in a manner consistent with science?
Throughout the discussion scientists and some corporate officials stated repeatedly that labeling is not the problem-- Proposition 37 was the problem. A potentially complex and expensive bureaucratic web would be created to police foodstuffs that have no inherent dangers. That's just nuts.
At this time I think everyone in interested in this issue should coalesce around balancing two concepts in complete fairness-- information and science.
