Unfortunately, the few relatively rare incidences when GM has caused problems like this have been and will be pounced on by the many morons that are against all GM and used in their propaganda against GM. They will cherry pick those examples where GM has caused a problem while conveniently ignoring the many examples where GM has either succeeded in creating benefits or at least has the potential of creating significant benefits to humanity (I will list such examples, both actual ones and potential ones, on request if someone here insists they don't exist )
The fact remains, the potential benefits from GM can be made to VASTLY outweigh the potential risks providing a few sensible precaution are taken (such as not leaving a maker gene giving antibiotic resistance in the organism in the final GM organism etc )
