ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the World Trade Organization in May 2006 that the European Union moratorium on genetically modified foods was illegal. The United States, Canada, and Argentina, world’s biggest producers of genetically modified (GM) foods brought up the case. The ruling did not favor six individual European member states that had their own bans on certain GM products. It was found out that there are no scientific evidence to justify the moves. However, the ruling can still be appealed by both parties.
