FDA approves experimental GMO salmon for human consumption despite lack of adequate safety studies
(NaturalNews) Just as we predicted, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has brazenly betrayed the public’s trust by approving the world’s first genetically modified (GM) animal in direct defiance of science – a transgenic salmon branded “AquAdvantage” that has never been proven safe for human consumption or the natural environment.
How is it that any of us can actually be surprised? Obama, like many of his predecessors, has appointed key insiders into high positions within the alphabet agencies – and many within the upper echelon of the FDA come from biotech. I find this absolutely disgusting. This should warrant a massive backlash; how is it that people demonize CO2, a natural gas that is absolutely necessary for life on this planet, and have zero issue with some biotech conglomerate playing Dr. Frankenstein with plant and animal life? Of course, these frankenfish will come complete with a patent (I am still at a loss as to how one can patent life); what happens then if these fish overtake wild salmon? If you think farmed fish never escape into the wild I encourage you to do some research.
AquaBounty may have just one-upped Monsanto in vileness. Please do consider slamming AquaBounty’s (as well as the FDA’s) social media pages with what your think – add them and post to their Facebook wall, hashtag them on Twitter, and comment on their YouTube videos. Enough is enough…
And again, due to zero regulations on labeling, consumers will not even know they may be consuming this garbage. Just imagine what impact this might have on actual fishermen in the Pacific Northwest? What is it going to take for us to have had enough?
Please get up of your butts and please contact your representatives and senators.
