The European Commission yesterday voted in favour of allowing genetically-modified potatoes to be grown in the EU. So the Public Health and Consumer Protection Commissioner says the "genetically-modified Amflora potato developed by the German chemical giant BASF, is safe". Wow!
Although the Amflora potato is not for human consumption, but will be used in paper production and as a cattle feed additive. Interesting or not?! Genetically-modified crops are extremely controversial in the European Union and are popularly known as "Frankenfood'. Soon we will have Frankenfries...
since the GM potato comes to the Netherlands soon.
