In First Ever Animal Case, Feds Approve Unlabeled Genetically Modified Salmon as “Fit for Consumption”

Someday in the not too distant future, our kids aren’t going to know what real food is. It’ll be a myth, like magical flying unicorns. They barely do now, considering all of the five-syllable petrochemicals, excitotoxins, and artificial crap most of our grocery stores are filled with, not to mention tons of unlabeled, pesticide-producing and doused genetically modified crops like corn and soy which are found in everything these days. The words “all natural” must be the most used and abused (and utterly meaningless) two words ever printed on a food package.

Now federal regulators have approved genetically modified salmon as “fit for consumption” in the first time ever a genetically engineered animal has been cleared for America’s dining tables.

As you can see from the picture above, the new salmon is much larger than traditional salmon, and opponents to the approval have long stated that releasing this genetically modified animal in the wild could potentially allow it, an obviously much larger fish, to forever corrupt nature’s wild salmon populations.

“This unfortunate, historic decision disregards the vast majority of consumers, many independent scientists, numerous members of Congress and salmon growers around the world, who have voiced strong opposition,” Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch, said in a statement.

AquaBounty Technologies AquAdvantage salmon has been genetically engineered to grow twice as fast as natural salmon. The company has been trying to get this salmon approved since the 1990s.

Considering the genetically engineered foods industry essentially monitors and regulates itself with its own safety testing and studies that the FDA later looks over and approves, nothing about this situation should make any American hungry for salmon any time soon.

In fact, when the FDA launched the 60-day consumer comment period on the potential approval of this fish, it did so quietly during the holiday season, likely hoping not many people would notice. Instead, the agency received thousands of comments from concerned consumers, consumer protection agencies, scientists, and even 40 members of Congress.

Via Organic Consumers:

The FDA claims “Frankenfish” won’t harm the environment, endanger human health, or harm natural populations of salmon. This accepted narrative conflicts with the FDA’s own data – derived from AquaBounty’s internal research – which shows the GE fish increases the potential for allergies. And do we really want to eat a fish that contains elevated levels of the growth hormone, IGF-1, linked to prostate, breast and colon cancers?

Like all other genetically modified foods in this country, citizens will have no protections via labeling laws to know whether or not they are eating a frankensalmon. Our best hope is that producers of wild caught salmon will voluntarily label their fish as not genetically engineered, a label which will likely help sell more wild, non-GMO fish and allow people to avoid the yet unknown short-and-long term health and environmental consequences of consuming genetically engineered animals.

Way to continue approving the raping of Mother Nature, FDA.

    Mankind is doomed when he believes he can modify and improve upon the processes of nature. Nature is certain to have the last laugh.

      The devolution is coming along nicely

      • It’s almost like they have another place to live so they don’t care to ruin this one.

    • Isn’t mankind part of nature? As such, whatever nature creates is part thereof.

      • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

        I always thought of man as part of nature, but mainstream science seems to view us differently. I know of no other part of nature which seeks to improve upon the natural design-or evolution, if you must-of it’s fellow flora and fauna, in any way, let alone by tinkering with its genetic blueprint.

        • Do you consider what Gregor Mendel did to have been tinkering with the genetic blueprint of the pea plant?
          Christianity views us as superior to all other creation wherein the bible tells us we are to have dominion over all the earth. If dominion doesn’t grant us the authority to improve on that over which we have dominion, then what could?
          Mind you, I am in agreement with you that we shouldn’t tinker with genetics in vitro, but I don’t see any reason why in vivo is a problem.

          • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

            In view of the current state of science and it’s dubious relationship and dependence upon government, I trust mainstream “science” as little as I trust government. Neither their wisdom or motives. Genetic modification, in my view, is Pandora’s box. The more we tinker, the more irrevrsible change-and potential damage-we impart upon the very things which have made life possible on this planet. Currently, we have no idea what long term impact genetic modification may have upon Earth’s ecosystems, let alone the repercussions regarding human health. Many believe the frightening reduction in bee populations is directly related to GM plants. Right now, there are very serious questions and concerns about GM corn and links to a whole host of human health problems-not the least of which cancer is one. The human food chain has become polluted enough with dubious chemicals and compounds and their attendant negative health effects, without adding further questions by increasing GM animals to an already confusing mix. The seemingly urgent need to hide the presence of GM products on labels only broadens my own suspicions about their supposed benefits to man. If they’re so great-why hide them on labeling?

          • What is more interesting is that, in most of the rest of the world, the labeling of GMO content is required by law, while it is prohibited here.

            Dane Wigington of GeoEngineering Watch has been reporting that the bees are being killed by the crap that is being sprayed in chemtrails, FWIW.

    Satan will do anything to Mimic and try to be like the TRUE CREATOR, GOD WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS, THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES.

    • Since Satan was created by the “TRUE CREATOR”, why did the “TRUE CREATOR” create his own nemesis, just like America’s military-intelligence complex always has?

      • Reverend Draco

        That’s what men do – since god was created in man’s image. . . that’s what gods also do.

      • Chosenone

        Just as THE CREATOR gave us FREE WILL, this was given to his Angels as well. The Military Complex’s Commander in Chief is “SATAN.”

        • How can free will be fairly based on a choice between heaven and hell?
          Militaries existed long before man created god.

          • Chosenone

            Just as Satan chose to defy God because he believed he could become God, many people today believe the LIE Satan tells them, that they can be a God as well. They think they can defeat God and not go to Hell, that is why God calls Satan the Father of LIES.

            John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your
            father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing
            to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he
            speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of


            When they see him cast into hell with them.. (Isaiah Chapter 14)

            9 Hell
            from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth
            up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath
            raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

            10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?

            11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.

            12 How
            art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art
            thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

            13 For
            thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt
            my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the
            congregation, in the sides of the north:

            14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

            15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

            16 They
            that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying,
            Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake


          • No bible verse explains how offering a choice between eternal life in heaven or eternal damnation in hell does not constitute an abrogation of the concept of free will.

            The BIBLE EXPLAINS ALL THINGS, BUT YOU HAVE TO ACTUALLY READ IT TO KNOW WHATS IN IT, and obviously you have not. How do I know this? By your idiotic statement that the only difference in Muslims and Christians is suicide.

            Obviously, you are BLINDED BY THE god OF THIS WORLD( who also happens to be the god of the Muslim religion) as you read in this scripture from the book of John 12: 40

            ***He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

          • The self-contradiction of the bible and its believers can only blame it and themselves for driving the sentients away from it. When an explanation of the contradictions were requested, I was always directed back to the need to believe in things for which there is no evidence, marking the whole process as an exercise in superstition. All gods are imaginary and illusory, and that which does not exist cannot have an effect on those who eschew superstition.

          • Chosenone

            Let me Reiterate!

            Obviously, you are BLINDED BY THE god OF THIS WORLD( who also happens

            hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor
            understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

            Your Choice, Your Eternity!

          • Since you never iterated which of the hundreds of the gods of this world you were referring to, reiteration is an equal waste of time and effort as was iteration.
            We all share the same eternity, you just have a superstition instead of the reality I have documented.

    • The FDA is not a living entity. We should exterminate it along with the other 99% of the federal government which is an abomination under the Constitution.

  • Critical_Thinking

    Have we forgotten our history so quickly. Don’t you know how killer bee’s were created by scientist who wanted to produce bees that created more honey? No one clearly understand’s how GE a fish could influence biodiversity.

    • We can’t forget what we never knew.

      • Critical_Thinking

        My point is that scientist played God by cross-breeding the African honey with European honey bees because they wanted to create a hi-bred Bee capable of producing more Honey, then they escaped. Now scientist are playing God by producing GMO Salmon.

        • I got your point, I’m asking for documentation and authentication.

          • Critical_Thinking

            See Wikipedia. That will give you a brief history of how Scientist cross bred bees

          • Or, at least that uncorroborated and/or referenced writer’s version of it. Scientists cross breed bees the same way they do everything else that they cross breed. Nature does it in an uncontrolled fashion, which is the only way that I’ve ever seen it well-corroborated. There are numerous invasive species running amok in parts of the world where there exist no defenses against them. Fire ants are one where we have an effective defense which is slowly removing them from the continent. Entomologists are still trying to eliminate mosquitoes by spraying insecticides and larvicides when the best way to do so is to introduce the rather benign but beautiful dragonfly, which voraciously consume mosquito larvae.

        • Reverend Draco

          Cross-breeding and GMO are 2 entirely different things.

          Your weak argument fails on that alone.

  • What is really ironic about this is that, while saying the Frankenfish are safe to eat, they are warning against allowing them to be released into the natural population.

    • americuh

      About as ironic as deeming gmo grains to be substantially equivalent to natural grains, yet issue a patent for them. GMO fish, corn, soy, etc., can, will, and do get unleashed upon their natural counterparts.

      • Fish have the advantage of not producing or spreading pollen, and the salmon in question is not being produced in the US where it was created, but in Canada and Panama, and only in tanks.

  • Mike

    Well, I won’t be buying anything other than wild caught salmon now. I used to buy farm raised, but if it can’t be labeled as gmo or not then I am not going to buy it.

    • Big Sam

      It might be a pre-emptive measure because the E p a has allowed Big agriculture to contaminated the Streams and Rivers use for Spawning. Sock-eye and all. I read where Fukushima was destroyed on purpose. Az has it right . And Salmon and all fish have harmful micro-organisms if not cooked correctly. It’s probably all orchestrated by the Locofoco to have ultimate control. That is what this totalitarian movement Is. I hope since, biological warfare doesn’t discriminate that the so-called foodies and greenies get in the way of this tide of perversion. It is still ‘survival of the fittest’. Glad to follow you, I always seem to get interesting perspective…

    I think in the future that growing your own food will become more popular.A small greenhouse using Aquaponics can make enough food for a family.

    Whey isn’t the government showing any concern for the Chinese carp that is threatening to destroy the fishing industry in the great Lakes?
    Fucashima radiation is showing up in salmon in our country. Does this salmon poses the ability to resist radiation?
