The FDA stands ready to approve GMO salmon, despite fishy science. The USDA recently announced a $500,000 grant to develop GMO pigs. Recent world events highlight the risks (and ethics problems) surrounding GM animal research. According to reports out of Russia, some 5 million swine have died within the last two weeks in the Anhui Province of China. EU reports call the event ‘a catastrophic situation,’ and officials suspect the disaster resulted from genetic testing gone horribly wrong.
FDA is preparing to announce its approval of genetically engineered salmon soon. Even worse, this fish may not even be labelled as genetically engineering or genetically modified.
