GM food: almost certainly safe

The UK government's scientific review will, apparently, report that GM foods pose a low risk to humans and are unlikely to produce 'superweeds'. However, the effect on wildlife is uncertain. Since many GM foods are chemically identical to their non-GM equivalents, the conclusion is not particularly surprising. It will be interesting to see if the UK government can hold its nerve and allow GM crop production.
