I completely agree with you. I manage one of the biggest Organic Health food stores is San Diego County and have been in the industry for over 15 years. THis has been one of the debates amongst organic grocerers and its up to the people to demand organic foods. Our Health food store is next store to Ralph's and has been in competition with them since 2007 when we both opened at the same time. Ralphs still does 30X more business than we do and it all comes down to educating the people and community about what they are eating. Its amazing how many people have no clue about nutrition, what GMO is even when they have a Organic Health food store right next to Ralphs. Our store is huge, almost as big as Ralph's is. Can't miss it...

Summary of the video-
Two "reporters" from the Alex Jones show interview folks outside a Whole Foods.
They have a press release from WF that says they sell some foods without labeling that has GMO's in them.
Many grocers earn more profit from agreeing to carry a manufacturer's product than they do from actually selling the product to retail consumers
Clearly, the executives and big investors who control WFM don’t want to antagonize millions of their customers, so they’ve issued a token endorsement of Prop 37. But here’s the inconvenient truth. WFM sells billions of dollars of non-organic, so-called “natural” products every year that contain genetically engineered ingredients, including thousands of different processed foods, nutritional supplements, meat, and animal products. Once Prop 37 passes on November 6, WFM, just like every other supermarket chain, will face a major dilemma. Are they willing to demand that their suppliers get GMOs out of the 50,000 items sold in their stores, and give WFM legally binding affidavits to prove this? Is WFM willing to stop marketing non-organic GMO-tainted foods as “natural,” when many of them are not?

Whole Foods makes it perfectly clear that their STORE BRAND items contain no GMOs. Some of the other items from third party companies do. They have not been lying. Trader Joe's is the same way. They make this perfectly clear on their website.
