Twelve dairy cows has died on a farm in Hesse Germany, after being fed a diet with significant amounts of a single GM corn variety, Bt 176. 2. What's being called "mysterious cattle deaths" in Hesse, Germany, has led to criminal charges filed against Switzerland-based multinational biotech company, Syngenta. According to the organization GM Watch, the latest criminal charges filed by Gloeckner suggest that Syngenta's director, Hans-Theo Jachmann, was aware of the livestock trials of the Bt176 corn conducted by the company that caused a number of cow deaths in 1996 and led Syngenta to stop further testing of the product. Gloeckner says the information was deliberately withheld. Bt corn is genetically engineered to be resistant to pesticides and insects.
