"The Movement Is Not Going To Let Up"

A bill passed the senate in a vote of 28-2 making labeling of GMO foods mandatory in the state of Vermont. If the bill become law, it would take effect in 2016 and Vermont would be the first state to require labeling.

The European Union made the practice obligatory since 2002, and China banned the import of GMO corn in 2013.

In the US, over 90% of the population wants to see GMO foods labeled like they are required to be in 64 other countries.

"The movement is not going to let up. People want to now about GMO's and the food we're eating. We have a right to know what we're eating and make those choices for ourselves and I think this movement for labeling is unstoppable" says environmental health advocate Stacy Malkan.

GMO labeling bills are in consideration in 29 states.
