GMOs and Kashi Boycott
I'd like to think Ms. Carson would be an advocate against Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) creeping into our food supply. There's great debate about whether Monsanto's GMO corn is unsustainable and there are reports that GMO foods can "can significantly impact the viability of human cells". So until we know more, at the very least it seems reasonable that GMO foods on our store shelves should be labled, which is the goal of California's Proposition 37 "Right to Know" measure.
I have long been a fan of Kashi Go Lean cereals, both because it tastes good and because of the company's stated committment:
"We believe the food system needs to evolve. As one of the largest food brands in the natural and organic marketplace, we are in a unique position to make a sizeable, positive impact." (from David DeSouza, general manager of Kashi)
So when I found out that Kashi contains GMOs and (albeit indirectly, as they are owned by Kellogg, which) has contributed $612,000 to defeat Proposition 37 - I joined a global boycott and returned my unopened box of Kashi to the store I had bought it from.
