The calls for GMO labeling have been long and untiring as Americans insist on knowing what is in their food, the major biotech companies have shown a strong unwillingness at labeling their products. The USDA have said that GMOs aren't 'materially different' from non-modified foods even as they have prohibited them from being termed as organic. New York Times food writer Mark Bittman has called it "a demeaning and undemocratic" act as the biotech companies violate the ideals of a free market. This might soon come to an end as NGOs, farmers and families in California are now proposing on having a provision on the November ballot papers for voters to decide that companies in the state label their products as "produced with genetic engineering." California is the most important state in the union and with its sheer size and population, an approval will have a rippling effect on the country.
