FDA Green Lights Genetically Engineered Animals For 'Human Chow'

Man plays God....man loses
--------------------------------

Rules Near for Animals’ Engineering: nytimes

"The Food and Drug Administration is expected on Thursday to announce proposals for regulating the meat and milk from genetically engineered animals."

"The guidelines could pave the way for commercialization of creatures like fast-growing salmon, environmentally friendlier pigs, cattle resistant to mad cow disease, and animals with meat containing healthier nutrients."
Such animals have been or are being developed by academic scientists and biotechnology companies. But the lack of a clear regulatory pathway for introducing them into the market has been one factor discouraging investment into the field.
Genetically engineered animals have extra genes put into them, usually from other species. They are different from cloned animals, which are genetic copies, with no added genes.
The first animal to go through these regulatory steps would probably be an Atlantic salmon developed by Aqua Bounty Technologies of Waltham, Mass. It contains DNA from another type of salmon and from pout, another ocean fish, that allows the salmon to grow to market weight in 18 months instead of 30.

*Update: The rules have been announced: FDA Says No To Labels For Genetically Engineered Food: Food and Drug Administration has put forth new rules which say that no labeling is required for products made from genetically altered animals. The products in this case are the ones that are going to reach grocery store shelves as meat, poultry and seafood.
"The new regulations cover a huge range of genetically altered animals. These include some already under development and some that are likely to hit the market in the next few years."

re: 'DNA from another type'
Creating a 'global food production system' is the goal. 'Human chow' for the global serfdom. The godless self-serving would-be overlords of the human populations of the earth have envisioned, they believe, a way to create an efficient high-yield lowest-cost food manufacturing system by genetically 'improving' upon the natural order. And it's a 'go'. The green light has now been granted for the manufacture of the unlabeled 'human chow', and it looks to be ending up on dinner tables across the globe soon.
Crossing the genetic boundaries between different species is a very serious violation of God's created order, truly beyond words to express. The Word of God in the book of Genesis records God's own assessment of all that he made...His creation...everything after it's kind (Gen. 1:11-25). At the end of the sixth day, when all the work had been completed, we read..."God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good". (Gen. 1:31)
The foolishness of these men, who have already "crossed the lines" here, not to mention their ongoing violation of the animal/human genetic boundaries (see: Congress and *chimeras), knows no boundaries. It is surely a sign of the lateness of the hour in which we live. Isaiah the prophet may have been referring to this very thing when he spoke of the conditions that would prevail upon the earth just prior to the "day of the LORD". That is the coming day when God will deal with those who defile the earth, and transgress the laws, and change the ordinance. Altering His "very good" creation certainly falls into each of those categories.
You don't want to be there. Rev. 18:4

Isaiah 24:5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.
