BREAKING NEWS: FDA approves genetically modified salmon for consumption

The FDA has officially broken new territory in the world of GMOs. For the first time, genetically modified animals are now approved for human consumption after the FDA gave them the stamp of approval as “safe”.

Genetically modified agriculture has been a growing mainstay on the dinner table despite an overwhelming majority with the opinion they should be labelled.

Now we have the added burden of identifying if the fish we are buying is PATENTED, without the aid of a label! As in, someone or some business actually owns the genetic code of a fish.

I’ll let you take a moment to let that sink in…

What in the world?

I’m concerned about the precedent this creates with all the current genetically modified animals that are currently in development.

What do you think?
