In a recently posted half-hour special,  California public television station KQED Quest explores genetically engineered crops in the wake of Proposition 37, the 2012 ballot initiative that would have required foods containing genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled in California. Prop 37 lost, but some 6 million Californians voted in favor of labeling, signaling that many aren’t completely comfortable with genetically engineered food.
