EU justifies and maintains beef ban

EU says science backs its beef ban:

The European Union (EU) says it now has scientific evidence to support its ban on imports of beef raised using growth promoting hormones.

A European Union spokeswoman says it can prove that growth promoting hormones used by cattle farmers in some countries can cause cancer and should therefore be banned.

Dare I point out that facts make no difference in any conflict involving US pride? They're proud of their hormone fed beef and facts from Europe aren't facts at all.
