The U.S. Food and Drug Administration used computer spyware to keep tabs on agency scientists who were communicating with members of Congress, records revealed.

The New York Times said Sunday the computer eavesdropping began in 2010 as an investigation into leaks of confidential information but ballooned into what the newspaper termed an enemies list used to crack down on the FDA's critics and potential whistle-blowers. Members of Congress whose offices were caught up in the spyware operation were outraged at the monitoring, they told The Times. "They think they can be the Gestapo and do anything they want," fumed Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa.

Men who drink several cups of tea a day for decades have a higher risk of prostate cancer, researchers in Scotland say.

Dr. Kashif Shafique of the Institute of Health & Wellbeing at the University of Glasgow and colleagues found those who drank more than seven cups of tea per day for years had a 50 percent higher risk of developing prostate cancer compared with non-tea drinkers or those drinking less than four cups per day. "Most previous research has shown either no relationship with prostate cancer for black tea or some preventive effect of green tea," Shafique, the study leader, said in a statement. "We don't know whether tea itself is a risk factor or if tea drinkers are generally healthier and live to an older age when prostate cancer is more common anyway."

Pests are adapting to genetically modified crops in unexpected ways, U.S. researchers say, showing the importance of closely monitoring biotech crops.

To decrease the need for insecticides that can harm animals other than the target pests, cotton and corn have been genetically engineered to produce toxins derived from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt, which kill certain insect pests but are harmless to most other creatures including people. However, scientists say, initially rare genetic mutations that confer resistance to Bt toxins are becoming more common as a growing number of pest populations adapt to Bt crops.

U.S. and British researchers say a parasitic mite is responsible for a worldwide spread of a virus believed to cause the death of millions of honeybee colonies.

Research conducted in Hawaii by scientists from the University of Hawaii and Britain's Sheffield University showed how Varroa mites caused the so-called Deformed Wing Virus to increase its frequency among honeybee colonies from 10 percent to 100 percent. Varroa mites live on the surface of honeybees, feeding off their blood and reproducing on their developing brood.
