Brazil approves sale of GM soya

Reports from Brazil say the government has given a green light to the sale of genetically modified soya.

The Brazilian president, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, gave his approval to the marketing of the product, on condition that it is made clear to the consumer that it has been genetically modified.

This is the first genetically modified product approved for sale in Brazil.
