Tell the FDA: Deny Approval of GE Salmon

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that itís prepared to give genetically engineered (GE) salmon its final stamp of approval.

The DNA of an altered salmon is engineered to produce growth hormones continuously during its lifetime, making it grow faster and bigger than natural salmon. The FDA has not conducted independent, long-term safety testing and merely assumes that the genetically engineered salmon is safe to eat based on industry claims, once again putting corporate science over public health.

Sign this petition to tell the FDA to deny the approval of GE salmon. Your name will be added to the comments below and emailed to the FDA prior to the April 25* deadline.

*The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it is extending the mandatory public comment period on the approval of genetically engineered (GE) salmon. Originally scheduled to end on Feb. 25, the public comment period is now April 26

I have one question, G.E. Foods since the 1600, when Monks learned to cross pollenate plants.

Breed Hybrid Cattle.

This stuff is not the same thing as cross breeding.

I signed the petition.

I know you guys don't have much faith in the FDA, but the Canadian equivalent which tends to be ridiculously careful has given it the OK so I'm not worried.

I would be against raising them in any ocean based, rather than land farmed systems.

I don't trust most farm raised salmon. Ireland and Scotland are the best, high standards compared to others. Expensive too when you can find it.

Fresh from Alaska is the best, during the run of the various types of salmon.

Won't buy seafood from China.

Nope.

We're talking about humans playing God by engineering genes.

Hybridization is crossing what God created.

Humans don't have the moral wherewithal to play God.

So all diabetics and all people who develop appendicitis should die? People with vision problems should spend their lives bumping into doorways? People should be mowed down by mumps, polio, small pox and so on? People with heart problems should just die young?

I really can't see the difference.
