'Mad-Scientists' Give First-Ever Approval Of Genetic Modified Creature For Food Production

Update on: FDA Green Lights Genetically Engineered Animals For 'Human Chow' 9-20-08 "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." [see post]

Two years ago, the FDA was in the process of setting up regulatory guidelines for "genetically engineered animals". Now, with 'scientific backing' as to safety, the final FDA approval for release of 'Aqua Bounty' GM salmon to swim upstream to your dinner table may come this month [here]:
'Frankensalmon' ruled safe to eat: Fast-growing GM fish approved by scientists
Genetically modified salmon, which grows at a superfast rate, is safe to be farmed and eaten, American scientists have declared.
The move by experts advising U.S. watchdogs will clear the way for the first GM creature to be sold as food.
The first GM salmon could be on American dinner tables within two to three years, and possibly on British plates soon after that, paving the way for the genetic modification of other fish and food animals into what critics are calling 'Frankenfood'.
The firm behind the GM Atlantic Salmon, Aqua Bounty, says its fish are normal but for the fact they grow up to three times more quickly.
The growth is speeded up by the insertion of two genes, one linked to the production of growth hormone and a second to ensure growth continues even in very cold temperatures.
The technology allows fish farmers to produce many more salmon at much lower cost, so boosting output and profits.
The FDA is due to make a final decision this month on whether to approve the GM salmon.
But a coalition of 31 U.S. consumer, animal welfare, environmental and fisheries groups is opposing approval.

While the GM fish are supposed to be sterile, critics said up to 5 per cent might be able to conceive and breed if they got into the wild.
re: "insertion of two genes...boosting output and profits"

Ah, the would-be world dominating globalists bottom line...profit:

[quoted from 'update post' linked above] "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...Crossing the genetic boundaries between different species is a very serious violation of God's created order, truly beyond words to express...[see post]
