The  European Union is set to pave the way for a huge growth in the cultivation of genetically modified food.

Despite little appetite for the so-called ‘Frankenstein food’ in Britain, a change in EU rules could open the floodgates for member countries to plant new GM varieties.

Up until now, EU politicians have tightly controlled GM produce, approving just two varieties for growing in the last twelve years, compared with more than 150 worldwide.

But under the new proposals expected to be rubber-stamped in Brussels on July 13, EU governments will be given much greater freedom to decide whether or not they want to cultivate GM food.
