EU set to grow more GM maize despite strong opposition

Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-26133592...

From BBC

The European Commission says the US-developed maize variety, called Pioneer 1507, is safe and the decision is now in the Commission's hands.

Most EU governments objected to it in a vote, but the vote tally was still not enough to block it. Under EU rules, the Commission can now authorise it.

Only one GM crop - another maize variety - is grown in the EU currently.

There are widespread fears in Europe that GM crops carry potential risks to human health and wildlife. There is strong opposition to them among the public and environmental groups.

GM crops are engineered in labs to be resistant to pests and weedkillers. They are widely cultivated in the US, South America and Asia.
