  1. IRT, Jeffrey Smith, these stand-up politicians and all people who fight the good fight for true public and environmental health are indeed heros!  For the sake of our future, our health and that of our children, a big THANK YOU to these people for making great landmark-strides in the right direction!     

  2. Celebrating our major victory in Vermont for the campaign against GMO’s! Thanks for all your hard work Jeffrey!

    This is the beginning of the end for GMO’s since the corporations that FOIST these disease-causing products on us won’t like having to create special packaging for every state. After enough states require GMO labeling like Vermont, chances are the companies will be forced to label all GMO products!

    1. Starting July 1, 2016, products sold in Vermont that contain more than 0.9% GMO content contamination will require a statement on the label indicating that genetic engineering was used.
    2. Products that contain GMOs and are labeled can NOT also label their products as “natural.”
    3. The bill does not apply to labels for milk, eggs, and meat from animals fed GMOs.
    4. Unlike the bills passed in Connecticut and Maine, Vermont’s bill does not require other states to pass similar legislation before it is enacted.
    5. Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed the bill into law on Wednesday, April 23, 2014.

  3. Well Jeffrey Smith sure is doing a great job selling his books without knowing jack shit about science. It’s sad to see politicians buying into this crap. They need to listen to actual scientists, not this quack.

  4. GMO companies like Monsanto, Bayer, Dow, Dupont, Sygenta are global terrorist organizations. They have infiltrated USDA and must be stopped. Bankrupt and crush them and jail their criminal “executives” for life, that’s the only option possible.

  5. Why are you settling for labelling, they should be banned!! Did you know that GMO seeds can blow in the wind for hundreds of miles? How about the vegetable gardener in your own neighborhood using GMO seeds? You don’t think they can contaminate your garden, or the people’s fields that you’re buying your organics from at the farmers market or CSA? Wake up, it’s your health!!
