The New EU Health Commissioner: Industry’s Trojan Horse?

Abstract:
John Dalli, the little-known nominee for the new post, may be about to prove the industry fears unfounded. The minister from Malta, who is due to take office in the new year, has indicated a strong pro-industry line in his first official utterances.

And he offers no concessions to public prejudices about new science. On cloning, nanotechnology and genetically modified organisms, he says policy will be based on scientific facts, and will aim to "enhance Europe's innovative drive" while taking due account of ethics and risks.
