About Monsanto

"Germany has banned the cultivation of GM corn, claiming that MON 810 is dangerous for the environment. But that argument might not stand up in court and Berlin could face fines totalling millions of euros if American multinational Monsanto decides to challenge the prohibition on its seed."

I guess every nation has not only the right, but the DUTY to use what they think right.
I personally am not against GM corn, because I believe it could be a good answer and solution for those countries in which IT IS A MUST to produce more to feed the population.
It is a risk worth to be taken.
Is it better to die for lack of food or risking a non defined damage?

That is totally unnecessary in Germany.
They have so much land, so much water that not all is even cultivated.
Why should they use something to produce more when what is produced is enough?
Why should they risk an unnecessary eventual contamination?
Just to feed the producer of GM corn?
