2010 Ruling on GMO sugar beets

In order to familiarize you with some current happenings re: GMO crops in the US, here's a link to a ruling by District Court judge Jeffrey White banning the planting and sale of sugar beet seeds in August of this year. 

Interesting that even with his ruling, requiring that the USDA conduct a thorough environmental review before approving the use of these crops, the USDA and Monsanto went ahead with the planting: until a consumer group, Earthjustice brought it to the court's attention.  It's all economics, big agribusiness, and it can seriously effect our health for generations to come.

Currently, the majority of sugar beet seeds (and therefore sugar crops) in the US are genetically modified.  This means ANY sugar product on the market containing processed sugars, corn syrup, etc. should be considered a GMO product.  You can easily protect yourself and your family by using organic sources of sweeteners, such as: organic sugar, organic agave, organic stevia, organic barley malt, etc.  Check your cupboards...  and check out the article on the ruling...
