The United States is pressuring EU countries into accepting GM crops. Some of its diplomats actually work for Monsanto. To quote from an article in Wake Up World, “the United States ambassador to France, Craig Stapleton, stated back in 2007 that nations who did not accept Monsanto’s GMO crops will be ‘penalized’” – threatened with “military-styled trade wars.”
Just two weeks ago, Poland banned Bt corn after beekeepers showed that it was killing honeybees. Poland is the first country to formally acknowledge the link between the GM corn and Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) that is devastating bees worldwide. Monsanto may have known the danger their GM crops pose to bees because it recently purchased a CCD research firm, Beeologics which government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture, had been relying on for help in solving the mystery of the disappearance of bees.
