The European Union recently adopted new labeling rules which it claims will open Europe’s door to genetically modified crops.  But Gregory Conko and Henry Miller, writing in the Wall Street Journal, say these draconian rules will do little to end the EU’s illegal five-year moratorium on biotech crops.  This is because the strict new rules, which require GM foods to be identified, also include segregating them from conventional products, and an outrageous provision that enables GM ingredients to be traced all the way back to the farm where they were grown.   EU officials admit these rules have anything to do with protecting health or the environment, but they will surely help keep European farmers safe from unwanted global competition.
