Sunday links: beeting the system…

We all love fresh veggies and for myself, beets in season are among my favorite vegetables.
But I am not so sure about the sugar products that come from genetically modified American sugar beets.


I am posting this Sunday link so you all can be a more informed consumer on this subject if you will read The Politics of the Plate: Beeting the System.

Interesting link. I don't think the use of Roundup on beets is good for the consumer. Thanks for the link.

Ah, looks like Monsanto is at it again...luckily many company's have said No thank you, but looks like many of the major players have yet to sign on ... thanks for the info.

Genetically modified products is a bit item of discussion in Europe... and hardly available. Many pros, but obviously also many cons and espeically a lot of question marks.
