Michael Pollan ‘€“ New York Times columnist and arguably the most influential food writer in America ‘€“ weighed in yesterday in support of California’€™s Prop 37 GMO labeling ballot initiative.
In his essay announcing his endorsement, Pollan talks about the growing food movement as an economic and a social movement, and then asks: Is it yet a political movement? Possibly. If Prop 37 passes, it could go on to change the political conversation around our entire industrial food chain ‘€“ not just in California, but in the entire country.
