Can anyone explain why, when there are strict controls upon the release
of genetically modified organisms into the environment, there is an
apparent lack of concern about plants containing new/foreign genes
inserted by conventional breeding methods, such as back-crossing?
Surely there is as much risk from hybrid plants created by traditional
techniques as there is from those plants modified using genetic
engineering, isn't there?
