In a unanimous decision, the justices said an Indiana farmer violated a company patent by replanting seeds.

Farmers must pay Monsanto each time they plant the company's genetically modified soybeans, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, rejecting an Indiana farmer's argument that his un­or­tho­dox techniques did not violate the company's patent. Farmer Vernon Hugh Bowman asserted that because the company's herbicide-resistent Roundup Ready soybeans replicate themselves, he was not violating the company's patent by planting progeny seeds he bought elsewhere. But the justices unanimously rejected that claim, with Justice Elena Kagan writing there is no such "seeds-are-special" exception to the law.

Of all the state-level initiatives on the ballot this Tuesday, few are generating as much vitriol - or advertising - as California's Proposition 37. If it passes, the law would require some genetically modified foods to be labeled as such.

Those in favor, including watchdog groups and organic food companies, argue that Californians have a right to know what's in their food. Those opposed, including various food and biotechnology firms, say the law could lead to higher prices at the grocery store and hurt small businesses. More than $44 million has been spent on the "no" campaign, with giant agribusinesses such as Monsanto and Dupont donating heavily.

More than 17,000 vials of an injectable steroid that has been linked to 35 cases of meningitis, five of them fatal, were sent to doctors' offices and clinics in 23 states over the summer, health officials said Thursday.

How many of the vials remain unused is not known. All have been recalled, and the Massachusetts pharmacy that made them has stopped shipping all products, the officials said. Fungus in some of the vials appears to have caused a rare brain infection that requires months of intravenous antibiotics to cure. Federal health authorities have asked physicians to contact every patient who might have received the drug from three contaminated lots.

The FDA won its two-year fight to shut down an Amish farmer who was selling fresh raw milk to eager consumers in the D.C. region after a judge this month banned Daniel Allgyer from selling his milk across state lines.

The decision has enraged Mr. Allgyer's supporters, some of whom have been buying from him for six years and say the government is interfering with their parental rights to feed their children. But the Food and Drug Administration, which launched a full investigation complete with a 5 a.m. surprise inspection and a straw-purchase sting operation against Mr. Allgyer's Rainbow Acres Farm, said unpasteurized milk is unsafe and it was exercising its due authority to stop sales of the milk from one state to another.

Piles of produce ready to become someone's next meal, quick easy and most of the time cheap. Markets like this are a familiar scene here in Hong Kong. About 92 percent of vegetables in this city come from mainland China.

There were concerns about recent reports of tainted food from across the border. Convenience and low cost may no longer be enough for some Hong Kong consumers. More and more people are looking to buy organic and today, there are more than 400 organic farms in Hong Kong. This one 64 kilometers outside of the city center is one of them.

Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment.

Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

Wayfaring Chocolate

My world briefly shuddered on its axis today. For a few hours, I seriously considered trading in my chocolate habit.

Chocolove's new Almonds and Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate bar, which is in fact so new that it is not yet listed on the website. Despite being only 55%, and therefore a far sweeter chocolate base than I'd usually pick, I adore this chocolate.

Norwegian biorefinery company Borregaard creates a fat substitute that will give the body more fiber.

Borregaard, a Norwegian biorefinery company, has developed a fat substitute called Sense-Fi that can be used to bulk out things such as ice cream, yogurt and mayonnaise, as well as be added to emulsified meat, such as hot dogs. According to Socius, a nutritional company that supplies the product, Sense-Fi is a thickener that looks like white cream and provides the same texture and mouthfeel as fat. It is made from micro-fibrillated cellulose, which is a waste product trees produce when they are converted into timber.
