Genetically Modified Salmon Cleared for Sale and Human Consumption

Are we playing God with our food, or simply hacking the system?

Despite the serious medical and ethical concerns of eating genetically modified foods, corporations the world over are pressing forward with their wild experiments…and succeeding.

The first real taste of GMO’s that many Americans experienced were stealthy, thanks to the greed of internationally-despised agriculture giant Monsanto.

The company, who supplies a majority of the nation’s farmers with the seeds needed for their crops, began genetically altering those seeds to produce infertile offspring.  This meant that farmers would no longer be able to harvest their seeds for the next season, and would be forced to purchase more from Monsanto.

Farmers caught storing their old seeds would also be penalized by Monsanto via a fine-print regulation in their mandatory contracts with the enormous corporation.

Outside of Monsanto, protein producers are now facing ethical and medical concerns regarding their own genetically modified products.

The latest battlefield in this fight are salmon hatcheries.

AquaBounty Technologies, a Massachusetts-based biotechnology company, altered the genetic makeup of the Atlantic salmon to include a gene from chinook salmon and DNA sequence from an eel-like species known as an ocean pout. The result is a salmon that grows to market size about twice as fast as its natural counterpart.

The company, which already breeds the salmon in Canada, expects its first batch of bioengineered eggs to arrive at its indoor facility in Albany, Ind., Wednesday, and the first salmon fillets raised there could appear in U.S. supermarkets in late 2020. AquaBounty’s decision to raise the salmon in Indiana is a landmark moment for the Midwest, a region known globally for its agricultural prowess but one where land-based fish farming operations have struggled mightily to become profitable.

Not everyone is on board:

“This is purely a commercial decision to make the fish grow faster,” said Megan Westgate, executive director of The Non-GMO Project, a Washington state-based nonprofit. ” They’ve succeeded in proving that desired trait. But there’s no benefit to the consumer or the environment. I think that’s why a lot of average people would rather eat salmon as nature intended.”

In their limited lifetime, GMO foods have yet to produce any verifiable negative results to human health, but experts are concerned that the small sample size has allowed these foods to become available before we have any real idea about their longterm effects.

Biden Thinks 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic Occurred In 1916 or 1917, Keeps Talking Gibberish

Video of the day??

He’s gone, folks. Joe Biden is completely, entirely, undeniably gone – completely out of it. His mind no longer functions in the same manner as a same human being. And it’s sad to see. Here’s a brief history of the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, via CDC: The 1918 influenza pandemic was the most severe pandemic in recent history. It was caused by an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin. Although there is not universal consensus regarding where the virus originated, it spread worldwide during 1918-1919. In the United States, it was first identified in military personnel in spring 1918. It is estimated that about 500 million people or one-third of the world’s population became infected with this virus. The number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States. During a Sunday interview, Biden blabbered, “We cannot let this, we’ve never allowed any crisis from the Civil War straight through to the pandemic of 17, all the way around, 16, we have never, never let our democracy sakes second fiddle, way they, we can both have a democracy and … correct the public health.” VIDEO: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1246965704177451009?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1246965704177451009&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-speaks-gibberish-forgets-1918-spanish-flu-pandemic-occurred-video%2F Here’s more Biden craziness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/SaraCarterDC/status/1246990076283764737 https://twitter.com/OtherJoeBiden/status/1245909881149931520 https://twitter.com/OtherJoeBiden/status/1246925807626444801 https://twitter.com/BRANDONWARDELL/status/1246947221016199168 https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/1246953599244144642 https://twitter.com/TeamTrump/status/1246944975272710145 https://twitter.com/AndreiJamal/status/1246992031479672838 WATCH: https://twitter.com/TimRunsHisMouth/status/1232322190625951745?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1232322190625951745&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fuh-oh-joe-biden-just-forgot-he-was-running-for-president-video%2F Former White House Dr. Ronny Jackson gave his two cents… https://twitter.com/RonnyJackson4TX/status/1232414578979540992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1232414578979540992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fformer-white-house-doctor-bidens-mind-scary-might-need-some-testing-on-cognitive-abilities REACTIONS: https://twitter.com/Ghentite/status/1232328424322191361 https://twitter.com/PlatzLair/status/1232323077448634369 https://twitter.com/JimConn04125141/status/1232322780672249856 My goodness, Joe.

Watch: Reporter Demands to Know Why Trump Won’t Close Grocery Stores, Fast Food Restaurants

The answer should be obvious…

People need grocery stores and restaurants to remain open during this coronavirus pandemic in order to, you know, eat. For most people, even liberals, that is airtight logic. One reporter, though, sees things a little differently. He wants to know why some businesses are closed down and others are not. From The Daily Wire: A reporter in the White House press corps pressed President Donald Trump on Sunday on why he has not directed a shutdown of all businesses nationwide, including grocery stores. Owen Jensen of EWTN asked, “There are grocery stores that are open, fast food places. Why even take a little chance? Just shut it all down.” VIDEO: https://twitter.com/CurtisHouck/status/1246953958914035715?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1246953958914035715&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Freporter-presses-trump-to-shutdown-grocery-stores-fast-food-restaurants Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/LizRNC/status/1246978683740569600 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246985732876533761 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246943009796542464 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246958570500952064 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246981628036931585 https://www.instagram.com/p/B-cwR4OF8HL/ https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246958845093539840 https://twitter.com/FoxNews/status/1246958357837201410 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246981004167974912 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246967856232910849 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246965733164077058 https://twitter.com/BroBible/status/1246958315269165057 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1246963819357880320
