GMO Labeling in Maryland

Posted on by Paula Gallagher

GMO is not just a new buzz word. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are unfortunately part of our everyday lives. Even if you try your best to avoid them, it's almost impossible to do that because there are no GMO labeling laws. On Tuesday, March 11, the Maryland General Assembly will hold hearings on two GMO Labeling bills. One of the best ways to create public awareness of genetically modified food and its dangers is to create a stir in social media. Please help the Maryland GMO Need to Know campaign by talking about the issue in social media. Here are some easy and important tools to help you get the word out. 1. You’ll find cool memes to share here: http://facebook.com/GMOFREEMD 2.
