Hello wellness friend,
We need to let the FDA know
how wrong Aquabounty Salmon introduction into the food system would be.
Please join us and go to this website:
Organization name: Consumer group
Consumer's representative: leave blank
Scroll the box on the bottom to Category: Individual Consumer
Sample of what to say to them...do not copy exactly but use pieces of the following:
Do not do this without further study as there have been no long term human feeding studies to find out what the consequences are of eating these “Frankenfish”. One can only wonder what the long term health effects of eating genetically engineered sterile fish may be. Could it affect our ability to reproduce? We don’t know for sure… but we can look to the results of the rat feeding studies on other GMO’d foods which showed the potential for sterility in the second generation… and that was from eating GMO foods, not GMO sterile fish. I have studied the mice studies in various European experiments and have seen the information that has been revealed about how damaging it is just to feed them GMO'd plants. This is only the tip of the possible ice berg effect on the environment. A full and complete draft Biological Assessment also needs to be completed so the public will have the disclosure on potential significant impacts.
To summarize: the risks to human health, to our ecosystem, and to the wild salmon population have not been sufficiently evaluated.
