First Ever Genetically Modified Salmon To Be Approved For 2014

fishUpdate: Groups come together to challenge the push for GM salmon approval.  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/prince-edward-island/genetically-modified-salmon-approval-faces-lawsuit-1.2506248

Scientists at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute are encouraging the Government to support the spread of GM salmon as well as support Genetic Engineering in farm animals.

The US government is in its final stage of deliberations on whether to allow commercial production of the GM fish.

It’s developed by using a growth hormone gene and a gene taken from the ocean pout. The fish is sterile, and would be raised in a series of large scale tanks. If approved, the salmon would be the first of 30 or more potential GM fish currently under development that could hit the market.

Biotech Corporations like AquaBounty seem to garnish the power of persuasion when it comes to dealings with the United States government. Many major “food and health corporations”, like Monsanto, always have major politicians that lobby for them.

Major AquaBounty shareholder, the Intrexon Corporation (1) is owned by a major pharmaceutical company called Clinical Data Inc. After Intrexon purchased Avalon Pharmaceutical Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Clinical Data Corp (2). Maybe our overall human health numbers are declining because the pharmaceutical companies that own our food want to make a profit? There is a multi-trillion dollar incentive there. Maybe it’s not all about money? Maybe something else is going on?

So called experts that are supporting the push for GM salmon and meat use the concepts of world hunger as justification for production. World hunger is not a problem that stems from a shortage of food. We have more than enough resources to make sure everyone on the planet receives what the human body requires. What North America throws away alone could feed the entire planet. The money that’s spent on War could eradicate world hunger. Since world hunger is not due to the shortage of food on our planet, we don’t need to manufacture more, that seems to be a mainstream media myth. We have to be careful what we put in our bodies, GMOs are modified using chemicals and in the end we are choosing to consume DNA altering food.

Not only is there opposition from a large portion of humanity that do not approve of GMOs, supermarkets, consumer organizations, environmental groups and commercial fishermen are voicing their disappointment. Supermarket chains like the Whole Foods Market will not sell genetically modified salmon.

It seems as if the entire food supply has been taken over and put in the hands of a small group of corporations. We continue to step away from real, natural healthy foods in exchange for genetically altered, unnatural food developed by pharmaceutical companies. Conflict of interest, wouldn’t you say?

        Might want to rethink that. “Real food” is pretty scarce, but making Frankenfood is not a really swell idea. And I am well aware that the propaganda is disseminated to make us believe that everything is really ok. Look into my eyes… You are getting sleepy…. sleeeeeepy. Repeat after me. Engineered food is a good thing. Soy is a good thing. Sucralose and aspartame are good. MSG is not really an excitotoxin.. it just tastes goood.

        Mendelian genetics take time to create new organisms. Of those, many will fail to germinate or thrive, depending on environment, genes involved and the organism’s adaptability. Lethal genes have always been around to cull the inferior speimens from a population. Splicing genes from other organisms’ DNA and then using viruses as vectors to get the genes into the target organism was never a part of the millenia-old method of breeding. More importantly, our bodies are having a hard enough time eating the adulterated shit that we pay high prices for at the store. (And I’m not talking McD’s. Haven’t eaten that toxic mess in four decades and got rid of pretty much all other fast food a dozen years ago.) We are simply not capable of the onslaught of – to our bodies- unrecognizable foods. Monsanto is an evil empire and you really should look into some of the research and the results no one hears about. Or not. You can always eat the GMO stuff, I guess. Zero population growth didn’t work fast enough because folks kept having litters paid for by entitlement programs. Soy products and formulas fed to immature organisms usually take four generations to dumb down a population and render it infertile, so that’s still a couple years off. So, eat up. Help our government on it’s mission. Line Monsanto’s pockets to the detriment of EVERYONE. Maybe the whole idea is to get an entire population too stupid or sick to care what the guys on top are doing. And when a guy’s on top, there is usually some screwing involved.

        Real food? Wise up my friend. Cross breeding and cross pollination have been going on since the Sumerian civilization. And you can’t feed the world on free-range chicken and wild-caught cod. We have a choice – watch half the world starve or develop food sufficient in quantity and quality to feed 8 billion souls today, probably double that in another generation. I’m not a big fan of growth hormones but that’s what we’ve been feeding livestock and poultry in this country for the past thirty or forty years, or maybe more. I remember mom raising chickens when I was a kid in the late 40’s and feeding them “laying mash” to stimulate egg-laying by the hens. I’m sure that stuff was similar to growth hormones

          You’re deluded. Why? Because you failed to understand the article, you might of read it but didn’t quite grasp the concept. Cross pollination and cross breeding are two entirely different entities, they are not modifying genes in lab and then releasing them into the environment. Its a very dangerous game. Cross pollination and breeding has been happening in nature since before man reared its primitive brain. Nobody is saying the world needs free range chickens and wild caught cod, the author is stating that there is enough food and resources to feed the world already, if we change the way we use our resources, money, farming methods etc. Growth hormones and GMO’s ARE linked to a host of biological disorders in the human body and the environment, the biotech companies that promote a cure for world hunger are only interested in profit, not social change or the health of humanity. I think it is you that needs to “wise up”.

          Laying mash for chickens doesn’t cause organ failure in the people who eat it,..it is simply nutrients and ground up shells to make better eggs,…and cross polinization is not insertion of foreign animal genes into a species. There IS a big difference between natural cultivation methods and GM food production. Even the World Helath Organization states that food freedom can only be acheived through natural, organic means (free of debt/chemicals and corporate control of seed) and NOT BY modern agriculture methods. this musbe promoted at a grass roots level,..not the other way around.

        • Think you should wise up!!!! 40 years is nothing in terms of human evolution, never mind the evolving process of the world, citing growth hormones being used for the last 40 years as proof that they continue to be used is just silly, as is any refusal to acknowledge that its greed that causes world hunger- An inability to share and fairly distribute resources not any lack of them….free range chicken and wild caught cod??? Try assisting developing countries instead of selling them weapons and causing war by offering vast prices to unscrupulous ‘leaders’ for their mineral resources and watch how easily people can sustain life simply…..ps laying mash recipe For 250 pounds of feed, mix 30 pounds of soybean meal, 30 pounds of alfalfa leaf meal into 150 pounds of mixed grains such as corn, wheat, barley or rye to get a diverse grain and protein mixture and provide hens with carbohydrates and other vitamins, finally add a little salt. No growth hormones then!!!!

          Cross pollination and cross breeding are something that can occur naturally and are definitely not the same as genetic modification which requires the the addition of a gene or genes by diliberate manipulation. The resulting protiens produced by these modified items are protiens that have effects which are unknown and and untetsed. The very least they should be forced to do are long term tests to see if there is any harm done by them. They do not require tests because the $ speaks loudest.
          The GMO crops are already known to cause cancers, birth defects and sterility among many other things but because the $ does speak so very loudly, the government backs them all the way and indeed, forces other countries to grow them by threat of sanctions, withdrawal of aid etc
          It has been proven over and over that GMO crops do not produce a higher yield, usually the opposite and as these fish are claimed to be sterile the only people benefitting from these ‘frankenfish’ will be the biotech company responsible.
          Unless they are lying, which is entirelt likely, and they are not sterile so the problems could prove to be far more invasive and harder to eradicate.

          Gil – do your homework. 1000 farmers are killing themselves every month in India due to the failure of their GM crops. These crops are not the answer to world hunger. Currently we produce more than enough food to feed the population, we just don’t distribute that food surplus to the people that need it.

        • Evan

          You see that is just the problem. As the article states we have plenty of food to satisfy our current population. If everything wasn’t so grossly mismanaged there would be no hunger. But over producing food is even more dangerous, it’s a proven fact that a surplus of food will equate to a boom in population. It is foolish to project into the future so that we may feed an even greater population without addressing the very serious threats facing humanity right now.

        • Gil, cross breeding and cross pollination can occur in nature. Genetically modifying plants and animals can not occur naturally. That is a big difference! Regarding feeding the world, did you not read the article? There is already plenty of food to feed everyone on the planet, without using man-made food that has been proven to cause health problems in many independent studies around the globe. Please do some research before you say that our food hasn’t been real since the Sumerian civilization. You are being deceived by Monsanto and mainstream media.

GM crops are full of pesticides that cause insects stomachs to explode when they eat the crop. We are extremely naive to think these same crops which have not been tested on humans for longer than 90 days would not have a harmful effect on humans when consumed. There is a HUGE difference between cross pollination, or cross breeding & Genetically Modified food. Unless your mom was splicing genes in the lab & putting it in the “laying mash”, it was probably a tried and true recipe passed through generations. This world CAN feed people WITH OUT GM foods, ignorance is not bliss, in the case of the industrialization of our food ignorance will cause cancer, allergies, and many “rare” diseases.

          GMO’s aren’t similar in any way, biologically or geneticall, to cross bred animals. The difference is, on one hand you have an animal that has had it’s life sparked with the natural DNA of two compatible animals, on the other, you have DNA that had been created in a lab and combined to make this ‘animal’. Your body can’t possibly metabolise something in a healthful way which is ‘alien’ to the the body’s whole system metabolism. Pants and creatures are being developed to uptake and become immune to harmful pesticides, so when you consume such a product, you consume the toxic chemical stored in the tissue too.
          There’s only going to be one winner if GMO companies get their technology into nature and it’s not going to be the planet.

    Genetic Engineering was suppose to increase yields and prevent world hunger but has not proven to do so in the U.S.A. What it has increased are the bank accounts of the industrial farming operations and Monsanto. Unfortunately, today’s food challenges are the result of “hunger by design and greed”. And, the monopolization of our food supply is the result of science and democracy being replaced by massive public relations campaigns by the offending corporations. The end result is heading toward a denial of our right to food.

    The best ways to fight this:

    1. Spread the word
    2. Fight for GMO labeling
    3. Do not buy GMO food or seeds of any kind if at all possible
    4. Start gardening with non-modified seeds and plants
    5. Join foodpolicyaction.org or ewg.org (Environmental Working Group)
    6. Reduce or eliminate your consumption of animal products. If U.S.A citizens reduced their animal consumption by only 10% we could easily feed the world’s hungry and we all would be healthier as well.

    We don’t need or want GMOs in our food supply!

    • julogan

      Well said, COfeline. Add to the list of what we can do:

      Be vocal with the nation’s largest food producers; tell them (Kraft, General Mills, etc) that you will buy exclusively their products if they do NOT contain GM ingredients. Imagine the overwhelming marketing bonanza that will take place when the public supports the first big food producer who puts “contains no Genetically Modified ingredients” on their product labels!

    • David Yocum, you must be joking because you can’t possibly be THAT stupid. There is enough food now to feed everyone, look at how much is thrown out and wasted every day in just North America. The issue is NOT to make enough food to feed everyone on the planet, the issue is the corporations that want to control ALL the food and ALL the seeds that are being used, everywhere. Have you even spent 10 minutes researching the issue before you start spewing nonsense?

      There’s enough food produced by organic and conventional means to feed the world easily. Its the greed of man that’s not allowing it to happen, not the method of production. And the greed of man is developing GMO’s, not concern for the fellow man. Do a little research my friend. Don’t read the scientific journals or anything from anyone that has stock or anything to gain from GMO’s. Read some independent studies.

      you’ve got to be a complete idiot! GM foods to eradicate world hunger? yeah right!! why are there tens of thousands of people still dying EVERYDAY if it were to feed the starving? obviously you’re not smart enough to think for yourself. the government has our best interests at heart huh? sheep! calling our comments ignorant seems a little funny coming from you Yocum. have fun dying slowly from all the poison you’re ingesting!

    • Yes, I would gather from your statement that you are on the payroll of a GMO company, and most likely don’t risk eating the fraken food yourself.

      Big companies have a long history of not caring for anyone except those who can increase their bank balance. And world hunger would be low low low on their list of priorities….. but you already know this.

      you need to go and seriously look at gm crops and their affect more closely..why do you think hungary has just burnt all their gm crops.this ISNT the way to go,Go and read how many indian farmers have committed suicide because of gm crops and the hold monsanto has over the food chain.we could solve world hunger tomorrow if our goverments wished it.But they choose NOT too.If you knew what was really going on there no way in hell you would support this.Russia is in the middle of doing tests to prove how gm foods cause illness like cancer and alot of other illnesses,although scientists are already shouting from the rooftops about ,well the ones not paid by the gov are anyway.you have a choice if you eat it or not,sadly kids won’t and will pay health wise down the line..

    I wasn’t created in a lab and I sure don’t want to eat food that was. We can make choices as a society to be informed, choice NOT to eat their products and in the end they will go out of business. The government can approve anything they choose but if no one buys it they won’t be around to sell it.

  17. OMG! I am physically ill just thinking about this! I’ve already done away with eating a lot of foods that I don’t know what I am eating for sure. I eat only fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits. I eat Hemp, seeds, quinwa (keen-wah), organic oatmeal………………………to name a few and there is NO WAY I would eat this! I would sign a petition if there is one. Pretty soon it will be ZERO people and hundreds of thousands of robots!!!

    David. You eat want you want to eat but I for one would prefer to have a choice as to the food I consume. The reports coming out of labs testing GM foods are totally inconclusive and it is possible that these foods are not harmless. Also, if most GM companies are so altruistic why are they so afraid of GM labelling. They also continue to push with all their might to get the GM foods grown in areas of the world which patently don’t need them particularly as they don’t have the harsh environment you mention. The food thrown away each year in USA alone would solve the hunger problem throughout the world.
    You have no right to call anybody selfish or hypocritical given that the ONLY reason GM corporates are going down this path is to make money and, in my opinion, it seems to matter little who gets hurt on the way provided this goal is achieved. It is certainly not for any altruistic or philanthropic reason. The major pharmiceuticals are no better. Why look for a cure when you are making billions out of treating the symptoms.
    However, I will follow your advice and continue to eat what I want to eat and pay for it and if my views are correct will continue to do so a lot longer than if I took your the path you are following.
