May 10, 2012: Beekeepers Win Ban on Monsanto’s GMOs in Poland - Defend Freedom
Monsanto’s Mon810 corn, genetically engineered to produce a mutant
version of the insecticide Bt, has been banned in Poland following
protests by beekeepers who showed the corn was killing honeybees.
Poland is the first country to formally acknowledge the link between
Monsanto’s genetically engineered corn and the Colony Collapse Disorder
(CCD) that’s been devastating bees around the world. Many analysts
believe that Monsanto has known the danger their GMOs posed to bees all
along. The biotech giant recently purchased a CCD research firm,
Beeologics, that government agencies, including the US Department of
Agriculture, have been relying on for help unraveling the mystery behind
the disappearance of the bees.
Now that it’s owned by Monsanto, it’s very unlikely that Beeologics
will investigate the links, but genetically engineered crops have been
implicated in CCD for years now.
