We've been thinking about moving back to Europe where GMO's are labeled!

As in this? We were very interested in seeing this sign in the window of a small market in Foix; Casino is a chain throughout France, or at least in the Southwest. It says "Casino products are made without GMO ingredients - that's our commitment since 1996":

Yes, GG - the Europeans realized sometime ago that GMO products are not something they wish to consume. At least, not without it.

There's a lot on the web about SÚralini's rat experiment. The GMO interests are jumping all over him, and they've managed to co-opt a good part of the European science groups as well because so many of those involved have some ties to GMO-producing companies.

It was such a shame that Prop 37 got defeated.

Yes, it made me very sad.

Washington groups are collaborating to pass a ballot initiative (I-522) that would require all genetically engineered foods sold in Washington to be labeled as such.
