Later this year, the first genetically modified organized (GMO) salmon will go out for sale within the United States of America. The salmon has been approved for sale by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). FDA!
What’s the difference with this salmon than regular salmon? Usually, it takes about five years for a salmon to grow to full length. However, the demand for salmon now exceeds the wait time for salmon to grow. The GMO salmon has been genetically modified to grow to full length at 18 months. Since the salmon has been modified by Monsanto, the fish is filled with glyphosate, the same chemical used in the weed killer RoundUp that has caused cancer within its users. Bayer AG, the owner of Monsanto, should prepare for more lawsuits if the Frankenfish causes any problems.
