Europeans Just Say No to GMOs
By George Anderson
The European Union may have no formal objection to genetically modified organisms
(GMO) but the same can not be said for a large number of environmental and consumer
groups in those countries.
The New York Times reports, “Many supermarket chains across France, Britain,
Italy and Austria, among others, yanked all genetically modified products from
their shelves three years ago and are in no hurry to restock. Most recently,
hundreds of Europe’s most respected chefs banded together to form a group called
Euro-Toques to battle the biotechnology lobby.”
Moderator’s Comment: Do you think there will be a backlash
of similar intensity against GMOs here in the US as there has been in Europe?
