GM crops are breeding with plants in the wild

Independent UK "Alarming new results from official trials of GM crops 
are severely jeopardising Government plans for growing them 
commercially in Britain. The results, in a new Government report, 
show - for the first time in Britain - that genes from GM crops are 
interbreeding on a large scale with conventional ones, and also with 
weeds. The report is so devastating to the Government's case for GM 
crops that ministers last week sought to bury it by slipping the 
first information on it out on the website of the Department of the 
Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) on Christmas Eve, the one 
day in the year when no newspapers are being prepared."    [.]
