This is definately a threat. Humans should not be viewed as 'production machines'. We are far more than that.
many good and proper reasons for genetic modifying
I've been watching GMO since becoming aware of their existence in the late 80's. They used to have "flavor saver tomatoes" at Meier's. These were 51% fish DNA & 49% tomato. I remember when a scientist discovered that GMO crops' DNA jumps from plant to Monarch butterfly and from plant to plant. That was in the early 90's.
This is the darkest agenda on the planet. Our DNA tunes in our consciousness (Daniel Winter). Changing our DNA will change who we are. They've known this all along. I knew....so, it can't be that secret. Unfortunately, those who have been eating garbage have a very hard time thinking, reasoning and making good choices.
And 51% fish DNA with 49% tomato? Really? You expect a thinking, sentient being with a basic grasp of logic and vocabulary to buy that?
The first genetically modified food to become commercially available was a tomato. The Flavr Savr tomato, created by the biotechnology company Calgene, was approved by the FDA in 1994. It was designed to ripen on the vine and stay firmer and offer a longer shelf life than regular tomatoes. Economic difficulties forced Calgene to withdraw the Flavr Savr from grocery shelves in 1997, but, ever since, environmental activists concerned by the onset of genetically engineered crops have targeted modified tomatoes
I'm not addressing the rest of your comment because your response indicates that the ball is in your court to do your own homework. You didn't even google the fish genetics, did you? It's so easy to find. Instead, you hurl insults. You don't warrant a response.
Certain rumors and horror stories mention square tomatoes or tomatoes that glow in the dark, but, in particular, skeptics have focused on research conducted by DNA Plant Technology, a company that developed an experimental, genetically engineered tomato in 1991. The tomato included a modified gene from a breed of arctic flounder that, it was hoped, would allow the tomatoes to be more resistant to frost and cold storage. Activists decried these so-called "fish tomatoes," protesting their entry into our food supply. But the experiment ultimately did not prove successful, and the pursuit of a cold-resistant tomato was abandoned. No one has ever purchased a tomato or tomato-based product with fish genes.
Although that article states that fish genetic tomatoes were not sold......they were!
I saw them for sale....walked by them...labeled and everything.
The tomatoes contained -a- modified gene from a breed of flounder. Hardly "more fish than tomato." Dunce.
They were labeled as "Flavor Savr Tomatoes". Although the on-line documentation claims one thing, those alive at that time (me and several friends) can remember the whole scandal quite clearly. I don't care to 'prove' anything to anyone. I shared. I'm done. If you have a problem with it, that's your problem. I have nothing more to say to you.
