Even if you don't live in Vermont this is something we all need to help support and talk about. Why? Companies that use GMO’s are not going to want to make labels for just Vermont. It will create more work for production and shipping to have labels just for Vermont, especially when so many states have this in voting circles right now. This is a wonderful step for Non GMO supporters, but it still needs to pass Senate, which will take place January 2014.
We want to know what is in our food. So many people are starting to really care about what they are eating and labels help us make conscious decisions. Whether we are looking at sugars, fats, calories, gluten, we want to know what we are eating. Many consumers are not going to care, and that is ok because Food is a freedom, but that freedom should come with the ability to know what's in the food we might be consuming.
I think we need to have GMO's Labels, yes, but we also need to educate ourselves, friends, and family, on GMO's. Labeling will help those with digestive sensitivities, allergies, lowered immune systems, along with other illness, to know if they can or can't have that item. Still many people do not even know what Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) are. Start today to educate yourself to help make conscious decisions for your family and yourself.
Help us to spread the word to everyone. What is GMO? If you don't know please see this list of main GMO foods and the risk they take on your health.

See the Drs Video on GMO's here. Although, I have to say I am totally aggravated by the "Wal-Mart Ad" that plays before the video. Just see how they take you down the cereal isle where majority of every cereal you see contains the GMO's we are talking about.
