The GMO big picture

(article, Culinate staff)

Feeling confused or just plain overwhelmed by the whole GMO thing? Tom Philpott has a nice summary of the genetically modified situation for you on Mother Jones, listing the big players, their products, how they work (or don't), and what's at stake for Big Ag, the environment, and the American populace — not to mention the ethical health of the federal government, which is under heavy lobbying pressure to deregulate GMO everything.

Philpott followed up that post with two more about the California GMO-labeling initiative, on the ballot in November. The first detailed Big Ag's spending against the initiative; the second, the efforts by what Philpott calls '"Team to spend as much or more in support of the initiative.
