No sufficient basis for the cultivation of genetically engineered maize
After allowing the import of genetically engineered soybeans for import, the EU Commission is now planning to allow the cultivation of further genetically engineered maize in the EU. However, there is no sufficient legal or scientific basis for the cultivation of genetically engineered maize: A new alien plant species called teosinte is known to be spreading in EU countries. Teosinte can cross with maize and spread transgenes into the environment. We are demanding that the EU Commission reinforces the precautionary principle and prioritises the protection of human health and the environment over and above the interests of companies.
Please help us to strengthen the protection of health and the environment! Send an email to the EU Commission:
