Did you all hear about Europe's decision last week to allow the genetically modified corn called TC1507 to be allowed in Europe? The European Food Safety Authority has labeled the corn as safe. But safe for who? This specific corn variety is to be used for animal fodder and for biogas production plants. Germany abstained from the vote on February 11th due to a strong split in opinion of the German states. Since Germany's vote could not be counted, they ironically ensured that the European Union would allow the corn.
The corn 1507 produces its own insecticide to protect the corn. But critics warn that this self-produced insect poison is also a danger to bees. And thus a danger to humans. No bees. No food.
What is your opinion regarding genetically modified food?
