Genetically Modified Salmon?
Earlier this month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
began the process of approving genetically modified salmon, likely
to be the first GM animal for human consumption in North America.
The GM salmon grows twice as fast as wild salmon and could hit the
supermarkets shelves within two to three years. This could also
speed up the approval of GM cattle, bacon, dairy products and
grains, which like GM salmon will be cheaper to produce and in much
greater quantity. Many are the concerns about GM salmon, among which
is the fact that it has a slightly elevated level of “insulin-like
growth factor 1,” a hormone related to growth hormone that has been
linked in some studies with higher cancer risk. One of the
motivations to approve GM salmon is the decimation of aquatic fauna
by the fishing industry.
