GM maize triggers emergency EU ban

"The European Union yesterday imposed an emergency ban on imports of US animal feeds unless they are proven to be free of illegal genetically modified maize.

"The ban, on corn gluten feed and brewers' grains, followed an admission by Syngenta, a Swiss-based agrochemical firm, that about 1,000 tonnes of US maize derived from its unlicensed Bt10 GM seeds had 'inadvertently' entered the European food chain over the past four years."

What is worse, I own the patent on your face, and you owe me $1.5 million dollars for wearing it--inadvertently.

Genetically-modified grains are GOOD for you.

Sheesh!

I eat them all the time, with no problems.

And that extra leg I grew might even help me run faster too, if it weren't growing out of my pancreas.
