If the FDA approves and labels genetically engineered salmon, and verifies it is safe for human health, would you eat it? (Comments & Reviews) (Page 3)

I don't think I'll eat it. Haven't had enough problem already with our food in this country?

I only eat wild salmon in the first place. Farm raised salmon looks prettier, but is not as healthy. I don't understand why farm raised salmon can't be done to create the same asthetics as raised in the wild in the first place.

what is this world coming to? We are all sick or diseased or whatever because for many years they have put junk into our foods when are they going to stopjj!!!! Years ago we had little illnesses compared to today, but then we did not use all the preservatives, fructose in things that are definitely unnecessary. Foods were more natural in the first place. Now that the FDA has allowed all these companies to put so much junk in our foods we are going back to natural. Wouldn't you know that the "natural" cost more than the doctored junk. Amazing.

Now that everyone in the country has something wrong they are finally starting to listen, or so I thought. Genetically modified Salmon - I DON'T THINK SO - NO WAY, I try not to eat anything I know is genetically modified in the first place.

Really sad! We will all be back to raising our own foods again, and shopping at the butcher shops and fish stores, etc, instead of department witht he hopes of getting healthier foods.

No frankensalmon for me!!!!!!!!!

No, I most likely won't eat it because I don't necessary trust the FDA. They need to be reformed. Just because they've determined eating genetically engineered food won't kill us, it may have other impacts that need to be researched before I'd consider making it a staple in my diet.

I think it depends on the modifications that are made, but it the FDA approves it (though I believe they don't currently approve safety for genetically modified food), then I'd eat it. Bring on Green Revolution 2.0!!

No one knows the long-term effects of genetic modification of food crops. Not the FDA. Not Monsanto, which has blanketed the world with genetically-modified corn, so that even farmers who are trying to grow normal corn have their crops contaminated with wind-blown pollen. We don't know how the organisms, such as bacteria and insects, that prey on genetically-modified corn or salmon or potatoes or rice will adapt. We don't know what will happen as artifically-introduced genes jump to other organisms, but we know that they do jump, and that unintended consequences result.
Much, much more research needs to be done in the confines of laboritories before we know what is safe and what could be catastrophic. ecosystems

You or I might choose not to buy genetically-modified salmon, but that doesn't mean that the two environments in which salmon hatch and return to breed (rivers and streams) and in which they spend their adult lives (oceans) will not be forever altered by the introduction of foreign genetic material.

I don't trust the FDA farther than I could throw an elephant!

BUT.......the govt will not label any genetically altered foods. Other countries including England enforce the labeling of genetically modified foods. Then the consumer has the choice whether to buy or not. Why doesn't our gov't give us a choice????????? Genetically enginerred foods are already on the market here---if you don't believe it ask any farmer who grows corn or soybeans. The seeds are engineered to resist Round-Up pesticides. Almost all corn and soybeans grown in the US use these seeds already!
