a union of Belgian farmers has expressed happiness at the "purple-green" coalition decision to assist farmers who had suffered as a result of their food being contaminated by the cancer-causing dioxin. The economic loss due to the scare is estimated to be around us $1.52 billion. This has also been Europe's worst health scare since the mad cow disease.
