GMOs Causing Food Fight in California

Big agri-business is fighting against a provision requiring labels for genetically engineered foods

Environmental protesters demonstrate against the FDA's position on genetically-engineered foods.

"I would love to see this done nationally, but right now we have to depend on states to do this," Sanders says.

However, Sanders worries that big agri-business is buying a victory.

"When companies like Monsanto have an endless end of money, can they ever be defeated in a post-Citizens United world?" Sanders says. "I would simply hope that the people in California study the issues. This is not a radical concept after all. It is being done in 49 countries around the world."
