Proposition 37-Why vegetarians should vote yes.

GMOS are something vegetarians everywhere are all too familiar with. As a vegetarian, I am very hyper aware of the foods I eat, and strive to buy foods that are labeled as GMO free and organic.

Unfortunately, the majority of foods on the market are not labeled as GMO, even if they have in fact been genetically modified. This to me, and too many of my other veg friends is a disgusting, and quite depressing state of affairs. Genetically modified foods are foods that have had extracted genes from viruses, other vegetables and even animals. Can you imagine? The apple you’re eating could very well have been created with an animal gene? 

Proposition 37, a proposition that will be on next month’s California ballot, would require simple labeling of GMO foods. Should the proposition pass, consumers could rest assured that they are not eating an apple, that is well, not really an apple. 

Although I am not a very political person, when it comes to my health, and the health of others I prepare to set up to the plate. Scientists, and manufacturers of genetically modified seeds and pesticides may think it’s ok to sneak this or that into the food people eat–I, and many others vehemently disagree.

Vote Yes on Proposition 37, your body, and the animals that may end up as byproducts in the fruits and veggies we consume, will thank you.

About govegetarianista86

After transitioning to a meatless diet two years ago, Lauren and I had no choice but to learn lots of great vegetarian recipes---and fast---after all, we always loved great food. The reason for our decision to omit meat and most dairy products from our lives was quite simple. A vegetarian diet is healthier, kinder, and ironically much cheaper than one with meat. We created this website to show that being a vegetarian is one of the easiest and most rewarding lifestyles to partake in, and hope that both vegetarians and aspiring vegetarians alike will visit Go-Vegetarianista habitually. :) About the authors: Nadya Rousseau is an actor/writer/producer residing in Beverly Hills, CA. She moved to Los Angeles almost five years ago at the age of nineteen to pursue her career and to escape the boredom of her small town. As maintaining a svelte figure is often pivotal in the entertainment industry, she finds she has no trouble staying slim and healthy as a vegetarian. In addition to loving good food and helping others, she enjoys engaging in sarcastic banter--keep an eye out for her frequent sardonic jokes--you'll surely be amused!! Lauren Rheims, is a native of Pomona, CA, and now resides in Beverly Hills, CA. She is a fashion and nature photographer, and of course loves shooting pictures of super yummy food! Lauren at first was apprehensive about becoming vegetarian, being of Creole descent, enjoying delicious seafood and meat, was more or less second nature. However after she discovered just how easy it was to enjoy the same delectable meals sans meat, she was thrilled! Lauren is excited to show everyone the simplicity and allure of vegetarian fare--and just how fun it can be!
