Farms here could raise genetically modified fish if FDA approves | ...

Full story: Columbus Dispatch

It's no comparison: The genetically modified salmon in the background is much bigger than the regular salmon in the foreground, even though they are of the same age.

The only way I'm eating a genetically modified fish is if it's delicious.

Ha ha ha. Said boldly and confidently by somebody whose actual knowledge of genetic engineering (as opposed to selective breeding) is what? I'm interested to know what credentials one needs to pronounce this stuff "No different?" And I'm sure the published science you've read on the subject will back your position.
Oh great

Oh, and thank you so much for breeding pesticide right into our food:)

Just what already sick and dying from AMERICAN dietary practices Americans need, MORE GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS!!!

WHY DOES MONSANTO GET TO DICTATE HOW AMERICANS EAT AND RAISE THEIR CROPS?????

They are trying to get us all under dietary control via the lie that they are doing the things they do 'for human health'.

This is a crock.

They couldn't care less about us. THEY'RE ALL ABOUT PROFIT AT OUR (AND OTHERS) EXPENSE!

ASK QUESTIONS! Don't eat ANY genetically modified foods. DEMAND THE TRUTH!!

YOU ARE THEIR 'GRAVY TRAIN'. STARVE THEM!!!

Actually if ethanol demand picks up and with what we export we won't need to feed you and still make our money. There is more to gmos than what you'll find on youtube. With the main gmo roundup ready or glyphosate tolerant, we are able to use roundup/glyphosate for the main herbicide. This is the safest most practical way to do it. Did you ever stop to think we eat the same foods as we sell?

If there is no difference then why not let the people decide?
Why have most countries banned GM crops other than the US?
All those other crops were green lighted on Monsanto's word alone, the US never proved they are safe.
They have not been proven to be safe, the side effects are unknown because there have been no long term studies on humans. Some studies on mice resulted in DNA damage that by the 3rd generation they were doomed. It will take a couple of generations at least to know the effects on our DNA.
You can eat their GM crops but let me make my own decision not some Monsanto controlled government agency.

And now weeds are getting resistant to roundup, just as bacteria are getting resistant due to the over use anti-bacterial products. Nature will prevail in the end.

Agree 100% with your statements above, as exemplified on a concrete level by the problematic bedbug invasions, the nearly teflon-proof antibiotic resistant MRSA cases leading to death, the self-serving mass overuse by Ag-Industry of antibiotic tainted feeds given to, not just sick animals, but to all animals. All of it- leading to larger and more complex and costly problems that such profit-seeking corporations- ever imagined it would have on its hands.

But, the problem with GM salmon isn't the product itself. The biggest problem is how to keep GM salmon from mixing with the REAL au naturale salmon. Only takes one careless boob farmer, or angry bitter worker who thinks he's being marginalized, or underpaid or whatever, to secretly stalk off upon firing taking a few GM salmons with him and throwing them into the Alaskan or Columbian River waters. You just can't do it. You'll NEVER, even in with the most stringent of regs acheive THAT level of control.

Too bad. Sometimes the best of intentions do not always equate to real life paradigms. No matter how good they may be.

Actually Dave, roundup ready, corn borer and root worm traits are allowed for export. Look for a new anti-Monsanto movie that was made in the last year or two. Also the resistance that you mentioned is not that big of a deal. We have options.

Just a farmer trying to produce as much as I can with the land I have. I actually don't plant Monsanto's seed but I unfortunatly have to pay the tech fees for using roundup ready. I don't use any of the other traits they offer.
