Last summer, Federal Judge Jeffrey White rebuked the USDA for its continual approval of new GM seeds without proper environmental impact studies; a violation of the National Environmental Policy Act. The USDA continues to run over the legal system and approved the novel GM sugar beet crops anyway. Their rationale? A GM sugar beet ban might cause sugar prices to rise…
GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms)
Monsanto has a strange way of trying to regain a flagging popularity. But, they have the FDA on their side as they are just one approval away from flooding the market with their new GM soy that produces omega-3 fatty acids.
There seems to be no limit to the violations of natural law that will be committed in the name of "science."
Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar has accused the multinational seed corporation Monsanto, the environment ministry's Genetic Engineering Approval Committee and Indian Council for Agriculture Research of conniving to begin trials of GM Maize in his state even before it had got clearance from the environment ministry and without informing the state government either.
The approval of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready alfalfa was the first in a USDA GM approval spree that brought with it the go ahead to plant bioengineered ethanol corn and the partial deregulation of Roundup Ready sugar beets this spring.
Despite all the equivocating about GMOs' "potential" dangers and begging for more research, which is restricted by patent laws, the facts are in. GMOs are very problematic for human health, as indicated by whistle blowing scientists.
In the wake of the USDA’s deregulation of GM Alfalfa in January came the approval of two more bioengineered crops in February; Ethanol Corn and Sugar Beets.
In the previous article, we explored how the USDA has partnered up with the genetically modified food companies, particularly Monsanto, to unleash ruin on the world and gain control of the food market.
You can avoid sugar, aspartame, trans-fats, or MSG if you're a savvy reader of labels. But if you want to avoid genetically modified organisms (GMO's), it's not so easy. They're not listed on labels. You could buy organic foods, which by law can't contain more than 5 percent GMO's -- but now that might not work either.
A federal appeals court in San Francisco has overturned a previous ruling to destroy genetically modified (GM) sugar beets, ruling in favor of Monsanto and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).
