The revolving door between the private sector and government bodies has been well established. Over the past few years in Britain, the media has occasionally shed light on the cosy and highly questionable links between the armaments industry and top people in the Ministry of Defence. In the US, many senior figures from the Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) industry, especially Monsanto, have moved with ease to take up positions with the Food and Drug Administration. Writer and researcher William F Engdahl writes about a similar influence in Europe, noting the links between the GMO sector within the European Food Safety Authority. He states that over half of the scientists involved in the GMO panel which positively reviewed the Monsanto's study for GMO maize in 2009, leading to its EU-wide authorisation, had links with the biotech industry.

SHANGHAI, CHINA—An official investigation in China has come down hard on a controversial U.S.-funded study in which Chinese schoolchildren were fed genetically modified (GM) rice. In a statement last week, the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC) in Beijing said the trial, which finished 4 years ago but was only published in August, violated ethical rules. The study's three China-based authors have been removed from their posts, while parents of the children who participated have been offered generous financial compensation.
