Chemical Safety Bill Could Help Protect Monsanto Against Legal Claims
The New York Times - 2/29/2016.
By Eric Lipton - Washington: Facing hundreds of millions of dollars in lawsuits, the giant biotechnology company Monsanto last year received a legislative gift from the House of Representatives, a one-paragraph addition to a sweeping chemical safety bill that could help shield it from legal liability for a toxic chemical only it made.
How a Chinese acquisition could put genetically modified foods on menu
Christian Science Monitor - 2/29/2016.
By Stuart Leavenworth - Beijing: State-owned ChemChina plans to purchase Syngenta, a Swiss producer of pesticides and genetically engineered seeds. If finalized, the $43 billion deal would be China’s largest overseas acquisition to date, possibly easing domestic concerns over the introduction here of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
