GMO salmon; not seriously?
If you look at the development of GMO’s it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that these abominations are the result of corporate and scientific monstrosity run amuck.
Cursory research will tell you that P.E.I. should not be involved.
Just ask the Prairie flax farmers how their industry was almost destroyed by the accidental release of “experimental” GMO flax. This “triffid” flax shut Canadian producers out of their single largest European market.
The GMO industry would like people to think that there is some scientific consensus on GMO safety. Nothing could be further from the truth.
When Monsanto introduced GMO corn, the tumors that developed in the experimental rats started forming at 90 days, which was when the study was shut down. So the liver and kidney toxicity in the rats never made it into published results.
Surveys over the last 30 years have consistently shown that 81 — 94 per cent of Canadians want GMO foods labeled. A Monsanto executive said they might as well put skull and crossbones on the packaging.
And the beautiful province of P.E.I. wants to get involved in this?
Sixty countries worldwide require labeling of GMOs. Other countries have outright banned importation and sales. Guess what the future is?
I’m not sure what convinced politicians to bring this into P.E.I. but once the genetics get into the wild — and they will — it will be hell to pay for anyone involved.
Shut it down before it’s too late.
