Monsanto's (MON -0.2%) genetically engineered NK603 corn should be banned in South Africa because it is hazardous to the health, according to the African Centre for Biosafety, following a French study that found the product caused cancer in rats. White corn is a staple food in South Africa, where genetically modified plants accounted for 80% of the harvest last year.
