New GM crops once again fail the safety test – EurActiv.com

If approved, these would be the first new GM crops legally authorised for cultivation in the EU in almost 20 years, at a time when the appetite for GM crops from consumers and farmers is non-existent. In addition, the two new crops – Syngenta’s Bt11 and Pioneer’s 1507 maize – come with incomplete safety tests.Untested, unwanted and unnecessary, it’s hard to see who stands to benefit from these crops, other than the multinational mega-mergers that have dominated recent headlines – Monsanto-Bayer, Syngenta-ChemChina and DuPont-Pioneer.But how did these two new crops get so far without adequate tests and despite ten years of scientific debate? The European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) responsible for checking the safety of the crops has rarely shied away from showing leniency to the biotech industry.
