Health Sciences Institute: Frankenfish

From Health Sciences Institute:

Dear Reader,

Corn, soybeans, wheat, and hay are all leading crops grown in the state of Indiana.

But now, there's going to be something brand-new to harvest in the Hoosier State: the Frankenfish known as the AquAdvantage salmon.

The entire AquAdvantage salmon issue should have been dead in the water, but this man-made mutation is back... and not only will it be making its unwelcome appearance soon, but it's going to be farmed right here in America, something we were told would never happen.

But being that the FDA is so fond of Frankencrops such as soy, corn, and canola, why wouldn't it escalate to a "bioengineered" fish?! And it isn't a matter of simply feeding more people with a salmon that's been "designed" to grow twice as large in half the time by injecting an Atlantic salmon with genes from a Chinook salmon and a "seal eel."

This is nothing short of playing God -- the laboratory "creation" of a living thing that doesn't exist in nature.

And should that fish or its eggs (which are bizarrely coming from Canada to be hatched in Indiana) somehow mingle with our native salmon, things will never be the same again. The test-tube genie won't fit back into the bottle.

That leaves you only one way to be sure that you're not accidently serving this phony fish up to your friends and family.

Because by the time we finally learn the consequences of eating this monstrosity, it may be too late.

It's not nice to fool Mother Nature

When this genetic mash-up, the very first genetically modified animal ever approved to be food, was given the green light by the FDA three years ago, one little matter was certain: This fish wouldn't be grown in the U.S.

That's the only way the agency could calm down the environmental groups, GMO experts, fishermen, and scores of everyday consumers who were hopping mad. (The agency received over 40,000 public comments about this, most all of them against the idea!)

In fact, AquaBounty, the company behind this Frankenfish, was having a hard time finding any country willing to open its doors to host the production of this unnatural creature. Finally, a fish farm located in the Panama rain forest agreed.

But after all the talk that went back and forth with the FDA about this, after some years passed, the outrage seemed to have gone out with the tide.

And then quietly -- almost secretively -- at the end of last month, the FDA approved a "new animal drug application" to allow the Indiana facility to start pumping out these Frankenfish.

And if you're wondering if that "drug" application mention was a typo, it's not.

The FDA includes the AquAdvantage salmon and its growing facilities in the category of a drug!

Obviously, the agency is giving this whole matter the same nonchalant passing glance that it does for the pharmaceuticals it approves!

Of course, the AquaBounty executives are thrilled to be able to come down out of the rain forest and into the States. The giant tanks are filled with water and waiting to be stocked with mutant fish as soon as the eggs arrive from Canada, incubate, and hatch.

Company executives mill around the plant in white coats discussing all of the special security measures and ways they plan to keep the fish healthy. According CEO Ron Stotish, with so many fish in one tank, should just one of them get sick, the "potential for disease to spread... is very real."

And as for eating this sci-fi salmon, Stotish says that it's nothing at all to worry about! A fish with its DNA manipulated to make it an unnatural size is no big deal! Eat up, folks!

When the FDA approved this whole idea three years ago, several big-name stores promised that they would never sell the AquAdvange salmon. But whether Costco, Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Kroger keep that promise is another matter. You're going to have to contact their executive offices directly to find out – and if necessary, protest!

No one really knows what will happen when this Frankenfish enters our food supply. Which stores will carry it? Will restaurants serve it? Will it be labeled?

And the biggest concern of all -- will it really be safe to eat?

These are all unanswered questions. All I can tell you for sure is that now is the time to opt out of this giant "aquacultural" experiment.

There's only one way to make sure that this sea monster doesn't flop onto to your table: Buy only salmon that's been caught in the wild and not raised on a fish farm. That can include fresh, frozen, and canned red and pink varieties as well.

To Keeping Food Real,

Melissa Young
