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.
