Please, no more genetically engineered crops. There has to be a reason these have been banned in many other countries.

As to the last point about GM food "banned in many other countries," producers in Italy are pleading with their leaders to say yes to GMOs.
From the USDA FAS report:
200 Italian scientists and farmers have written an appeal to President Napolitano and Prime Minister Monti. The letter specifically asks that Italy be given the possibility to compete in agriculture ― both scientifically and economically ― by putting a stop to the anti-GMO policy in Italy.
