Genetically modified corn causes infertility

New research by the Austrian government confirms that a Monsanto-patented genetically modified maize causes infertility in mice (and probably in humans too). The variety, known as NK 603 x MON 810, is by the moment forbidden in the European Union but it is being grown experimentally in 30 municipalities of Spain.

Sources: Greenpeace, G&C and La Haine (all three in Spanish)

Research paper should be found here (in German) but at the moment the PDF link is broken, giving a "500 Internal Server Error" page.
