gmo meat 263x164 GM Salmon, Genetic Engineering of Farm Animals to Arrive in Summer 2013 Despite Public OppositionBy summer of 2013, US governing bodies, or, the alphabet soup of corruption (USDA, FDA, etc.) are expected to grant permission for scientists to roll out genetically modified salmon and allow for genetic engineering in farm animals for human consumption.

Genetically Modified Salmon to Arrive Summer of 2013

These ‘foods’ are grown using growth hormone genes taken from sterile fish. The salmon that are grown using this form of GM farming will be the first in a series of about 30 fish that will be unleashed for pubic consumption. This time it isn’t Monsanto at the helm of the evil plot to make us sterile and cancerous, but a company named AquaBounty. One of its major shareholders is the Intrexon Corporation, owned by a pharmaceutical company called Clinical Data Inc (acquired by Forest Laboratories). This company is using world food shortages to justify growing genetically modified fish and farm animals, but arguably, there is no food shortage.

We throw away millions of tons of food every year. Countless people only starve due to the engine of political/corporate greed, like the 14.5 billion dollars worth of food heisted by politicians in India recently and kept from small village food pantries. North American food waste alone could feed the entire planet.

So what does a company like Aqua Bounty (Clinical Data, Inc.) stand to gain if we eat foods that cause cancer and make us infertile? We then have to buy cancer drugs and chemo. We just might think of taking drugs that make us able to create our own young. It wouldn’t  be the worst plan to make us sick and desperate and milk us of our money. When will GMO stop? It’s beyond objectionable, it’s pure lunacy. Our entire food supply is being taken over by pharmaceutical companies.

Interestingly, a genetically modified salmon created by the company AquAdvantage was actually blocked for approval by Congress back in 2011 due to serious health concerns. The good news is, whether or not the FDA chooses to approve this genetically modified salmon for sale in the marketplace now, supermarkets like Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Aldi, and others have decided to refuse the sale of AquaBounty’s modified salmon.

    Hope they don't plan to use this GM Salmon in fish oil capsules. Maybe that's the idea behind pharmaceutical companies buying up supplement companies.

  • transparency

    let's get all the pure seeds, and pure breeded animals and mammals
    and invest in our own grassroots ethical fisheries, gardens, habitats, etc until
    several generations grown –
    and keep them the h**l away from the u.n. agenda 21 crowd, the corporations and corporatized environmentalists

    the planet does not belong to them.

  • transparency

    It's always been about the money and control.

    Bluefin tuna is almost on extinction if we do not take action, yet the fisheries are going to fish all they can –
    they then store and freeze them so they can charge double and triple.

    The profits made on GE-induced illnesses is part of the loop.

    Always follow the money.

    These salmon are said to be grown in a far away place, so that they will not/can not threaten wild salmon species. But no fishery is 100% escapeproof. In all fisheries there are fish that escape. Sometimes the babyfish, but they will grow up and spread their diseases, just like ordinary salmon grown in fisheries do and most likely eat all natural species as their prey. Wild salmon are already suffering from a norwegian originated diseases, spread by locally grown salmon in fisheries, who come from eggs, that originate in Norway. Many now die before having spawned. Why would some group continue to make decisions that cause elimination of all wild, natural species. Is it the money they make on our cancers?

    under the guise of corporate- manufactured "food shortages"
    so they can sell$$$
    to people their "product" (GMO'd foods) —

    the unethical tactic to destroy or extinct pure biological sources, living systems and living earth animals and mammals so they can "sell" you theirs $$$ and their version.

    Kudos to the refusal of the sale.

    I do agree… why the need to produce GM products if we could just simply produce natural ones. which are more healthier. Good to know that our trusted establishments are banning this products to enter their business scene.
