EU freezes approval of GM crops to 2014

The European Commission has decided to freeze the approval process for genetically modified food crops through the end of its mandate next year while it works towards an agreement with EU member states. Eight countries – Austria, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Luxembourg and Poland have adopted provisions that allow them to block the cultivation of GM crops on their territory.

ed. comment: Do they know something we don’t? Why does the US push GMO crops when the EU thinks they are not acceptable?
