I got back from my yoga class this afternoon and read the bad news: a division of the USDA, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), has to decided to recommend that the agency deregulate genetically-engineered sugar beets.

In plain English, what does this mean?

The report paves the way for the USDA to approve another senseless genetically-engineered crop, which will end up contaminating nearby organic plants. The Obama administration continues its complete betrayal of the organic industry.

On the bright side of things, it’s a gorgeous day in New York City and my yoga classed rocked. Here’s some organic food reading pleasure for you as the summer finally begins. Enjoy!
