    EU votes to keep ban on GM crops

    As usual, Britain was the American's poodle, and backed the US stance that we should allow these Frankenstein crops. The Guardian reports:

    One of the most contentious issues at the meeting was a variety of Bt Maize produced by Monsanto called MON 863, which caused unexplained kidney damage to rats, according to research conducted by the manufacturer. Monsanto has refused to release all the results of its own tests on the maize, although it has now been ordered to do so by a German court. Mr Morley said that while he was concerned about the findings, British scientists who had seen the data had concluded that this one study was not sufficient grounds to ban the crop. As a result the government had again voted for it to be introduced.
    So unexplained kidney damage arising from crops, did not, in the view of Blair & Co warrant an extension of the ban. Ridiculous, and dangerous. They should be ashamed. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
