    WTO rules frankenstein foods must be allowed into Europe

    According to this article, from the Independent today, the World Trade Organisation has ruled that frankenstein foods from America must be allowed into europe:

    The row over GMOs has exacerbated transatlantic tensions over trade. In most European countries there is acute suspicion of GM technology which is widely accepted by North Americans. Corn and soybeans that have been genetically modified to resist insects or disease have been widely grown in the US for years. The case refers to the period between 1998 and 2004 when a group of EU member states blocked all new approvals until a new system was in place which would boost traceability and labelling of GM products.

    Greenpeace International has a useful section on its website looking at genetic engineering, for those concerned by this ruling.
