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.
