Obscure little Vermont has a GMO labeling law going into effect July 1st, the 1st in the nation. For the non-native English speakers here GMO is Genetically Modified Organism, food that the industry giants have tampered with genetically to improve yield, resist pests etc. What amazes me is that Vermont has won the legal challenges by the food industry giants and their government allies. The GMO labeling foes have far greater resources that they brought to bear than VT has and yet we won the challenges. This is a classic David and Goliath tale. Just Monsanto alone has 3X higher revenue than the VT State budget. Then throw in the resource of the others and the pundits said VT could never win, yet we did.
