EU Commissioner: US firms "tried to lie" over GM crops

"They tried to lie to people, and they tried to force it upon people. It`s the wrong approach. You cannot force it upon Europe. So I hope they have learnt a lesson from this, especially when they now try to argue that this will solve the problems of starvation in the world and so on. But come on ... it was to solve starvation amongst shareholders, not the developing world," the EUs Commissioner for the environment, Margot Walström told journalists in London.</p><p><a href="http://news.independent.co.uk/world/science_medical/story.jsp?story=453124">News</a>
