Transgene Corn Approved In Russia
Sweet corn may turn bitter

Russian science and reserch Institute of Nutrition approves using transgene corn MON 88017, resistant to glyphosate pesticide and rootworm, in food industry and for sale.
      Russian legislation classifies food, made of genetically modified products, as new type of food and obliges it to pass safety tests, as well as monitors its further turnover.
      Mentioned line of GM-corn, having two alien genes, is the latest development of American Monsanto Company, which was approved for consuming in the US in 2005, however, European Union refused to register it.
      Time will show what transgene food means for future human generations.
