Asian carp made it out of farms and into our waters. These biological weapons will also. If they grow twice as fast, it's highly likely they will
eventually wipe out Salmon. I'm not calling these things salmon, because they're not. I'll call them RFE1 (reckless fish experiment 1.)
If they want to have them in indoor pens, not linked to any external waters, and people want to eat them, knowingly, then fine, go for it. It'll help
natural fish stocks recover. But don't sneak them onto the plates of people who care, but don't know enough, and don't allow for any risk of
introducing them into the outside environment.
Personally, if I don't know my fish is wild fish, I won't touch it. There's better things to eat than fish raised in a cesspool of toxic farm
runoff, antibiotics, bacteria, and crowded in with other fish, inundated with the feces of all the others, with barely any room to move.
If it's $25/lb for real salmon, fine, I just won't eat it that often.
I'd like to point out as well - no labeling requirement does not mean that a food product can't be labeled. RGBH milk, for example, is not labeled
as such, but all the milk produced without the added hormones tells you right on the carton. A box of crackers doesn't advertise "made with GMO
corn, sprayed with DNA damaging pesticides!", but a box of organic crackers will tell you "no GMO. No Pesticides"
We truly need to be concerned (at least those who care) when they start not allowing natural foods to display that they're any different from the
toxic carcinogens they want us eating. That's why " no labeling" doesn't bother me *personally*, though I wish the truth about bad foods did have
to be advertised right on the box, along with a related "healthcare surcharge" to bring its cost up and pay for the additional health costs of those
eating them. If less people ate processed, horrible foods, my health insurance premiums would go down - ours all would. Even those who have universal
national healthcare - your taxes could go down, or money diverted to other things if the poisoned foods people eat weren't busy making evil
corporations rich and people sick.
I decided years ago, that my list of most evil industries is led not by the oil companies, weapons manufacturers, etc,, but by GMO foods and their
cousins the pharmeceutical corps.
