The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has approved three strains of genetically modified maize seed produced by Monsanto for the EU. Monsanto is a leading biotech company in the U.S. and has introduced many types of GM stock seed used all over the world.

The three maize hybrids are all manufactured by U.S. biotech giant Monsanto . Their intended use in the European Union, if an authorization is granted, would be for in food and animal feed, as well as industrial processing, but not growing.

"The panel considered that the information available is sufficient to come to a conclusion and that the GM maize hybrids ... will not have adverse effects on human or animal health ior on the environment in the context of their proposed uses," the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said in a statement.

There's been quite a bit of speculation about the safety of GM food and seed. There are also quite a few horror stories about the way Monsanto does business. Keep in mind though that this only means that the grain is considered safe for use in the EU in food products and livestock feed. These strains are not meant for growing GM corn.

A contributor voting NO on your submission: (submission) (business) Monsanto GMO hybrids for Europe has indicated they did so because they feel your topic really isn't appropriate for ATSNN. Keep in mind that ATSNN is the news portal service of a conspiracy and alternative topic community.


If you look at the history of the company, I think you will see this fits on ASTNN very well. This company is dirty in a lot of ways. Next time explore the reference links. Some people are a little too "NO" happy.

Only approved for use in the EU for food products and livestock feed? Isn't that bad enough? If the stories about genetically modified products having, potential, long-term health effects on humans, when consumed, the introduction of tons and tons of gm maize into the food and livestock chain could be disatorous.

I agree that this is bad even though it won't be used to grow crops. It could actually be worse, this way it will end up in a wide variety of products instead of just corn. Just because we can genetically modify food, doesn't mean we should.

The implication for me on genetically manufactured foods is broad spectrum.......on one hand, you'll have more efficient growing habits atht will enable more food for more people - which is an impending issue - and on the other hand, you have the possibility for the encouragement of genetic applications for mood enhancements.....ala fluoride, just a bit more intrinsic. Granted, the fluoride angle is a bit paranoid, but then again, they do throw it in the water supply needlessly.
