No More Sweets For You!… Activist Judge Bans Genetically Enhanced Sugar Beets


A radical judge banned planting of genetically enhanced sugar beets in the United States.
Sugar beets account for over half of the nation’s sugar supply.

reported:

A federal judge on Friday banned the planting of genetically modified sugar beets engineered by Monsanto Co in a ruling that marks a major setback for the biotech giant.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White ruled in 2009 that the U.S. Department of Agriculture had approved Monsanto’s genetically modified sugar beets without adequate environmental study.

Sugar beets account for over half of the nation’s sugar supply. But conventional sugar beet seeds remain widely available and environmentalists filing suit said the judge’s decision should not significantly affect sugar production.

White’s decision on Friday to impose the ban did not apply to crops already planted or harvested. It stems from a lawsuit brought by environmentalists over Monsanto sugar beets engineered to be resistant to the weed-killer Roundup.

Once again far left environmentalists will force Americans to pay more for a product based on their fear-mongering and paranoia. And, who will suffer most?… The poor.
Thanks lefties.
