Justices hear dispute over lower-cost biotech drugs sales 27.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • The Supreme Court on Wednesday considered a dispute between rival drug companies that could affect how quickly life-saving generic medicines are available to the public. The case before the justices involves the cutting-edge field of biologics — drugs made from living cells instead of chemicals. The drugs have led to major advances in treating cancer and other diseases, but often come with a massive price tag. A 2010 law allows cheaper generic versions known as biosimilars to be pro... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Cargill link to anti-GMO group spurs farmer criticism 29.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Cargill Inc.’s efforts to supply food companies with non-genetically modified ingredients have come under attack from the other side of its business: farmers.

GMO seeds are sustaining Colorado’s sugar beet farms, but new labels could damage already shrinking industry 6.11.2016 Denver Post: All Political News
The first "Roundup Ready" sugar beet was approved by the USDA in 1999, but no one grew any back then. A second variety was approved in 2005, and that one wasn't grown either, mainly because candy and other kinds of manufacturers weren't interested in buying sugar from genetically engineered beets. It was 2008 when farmers began planting rows of GMO sugar beets, but uncertainty for farmers remained: a 2009 judge's ruling halted any new planting of the beets but those who had already planted were allowed to keep planting them. An organic seed grower in Oregon, who specialized in organic chard and table beets, worried the new genetically engineered beets at a neighboring farm were cross-pollinating with his beets and chard as their seeds floating in the wind. If his seeds tested positive for GMO, his seed business would be destroyed, he argued. "We feel their decision is still wrong and they are still not taking the contamination issue seriously," Sugar beet seeds carried by wind can cross pollinate ...
