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?

A potentially complex and expensive bureaucratic web would be created to police foodstuffs that have no inherent dangers. That's just nuts.
