Honesty is the best policy

Isn't honesty always the best policy?  That's one of those maxims we learn as children, right up there with the Golden Rule, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."  And like the Golden Rule, it's an important lesson for children but it's one that you should carry through your whole life, and it's disappointing when we see people in the adult world not abiding.  For instance, it's dishonest when the industries and companies that feed our country don't tell consumers if their food contains GMOs.

Honesty isn't too difficult.  Here, I'll start:  I honestly didn't have it in me to write an entire blog post today, so instead I'm linking to the homepage for the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act of 2012, a policy that would mandate honesty.  Give it a look and take a minute to consider the role that honesty plays in our national food system and the choices you make when it comes to food.
