      Hi Christine,

      Paul Fonder was curious to see what kind of corn squirrels would favor.
       
      Last fall, Fonder conducted an experiment in his South Dakota backyard. He built a squirrel feeder and put genetically modified corn fresh from a neighbor’s field on one post and one-year-old organic corn on the other.
      “You would expect squirrels to prefer fresh corn over corn that’s a year old,” said Fonder. But that’s not what happened.
       
      Here's a simple picture that tells the story.

      Do you think that it’s possible the squirrels might be on to something here?
       
      If you want to see GMOs labeled in the United States, like they are in the picture, then here’s some good news.  Labeling efforts are underway in 26 states, and in November voters in the state of Washington will have the opportunity to make their state the first in the nation to mandate labeling without condition.
       
      Public interest lawyer and Food Revolution Summit speaker Michele Simon has written a new post with an update on important developments in Washington’s Initiative 522, and how you can help.
