…AquAdvantage Salmon reveals that Canadian government scientists found significant problems with the fish, including increased susceptibility to disease and widely inconsistent growth rates. As a result of this newly released draft risk assessment, U.S. NGOs are calling for the U.S. FDA to stop its own review of the fish.

“Contrary to the assertions of its proponents, the massive enterprise to reconfigure the genetic core of the world’s food supply is not based on sound science but on the systematic subversion of science – and it would collapse if subjected to an open airing of the facts.”

The shameless and yet shameful deliberate lies of the Frnakenfood industry continue to pile up and contort the very purpose of science.
Assembling big lists of studies supposedly providing overwhelming evidence of the safety of GMOs has become common practice by GMO proponents. GENERA is just the latest in a long series of such lists. The success of the tactic depends on the reading public failing to examine the actual studies and seeing what they say.
“However, this review suffers from serious defects, such as:
- classifying relatively short studies as long-term, even though they only follow the animals for a fraction of their natural lifespan
- including animal production studies designed to examine parameters such as meat or milk production, which do not look for health effects
- including studies on fish and birds, which have a different digestive system and metabolism from those of humans and are not relevant to assessing human health risks
- including studies in which the sample sizes are too small to draw any conclusions
- including a study in which animals were removed from the experiment for undefined reasons and replaced (naturally this study concluded the GMO was safe!)
- using unscientific double standards in dismissing the findings of studies that find toxic effects on the grounds of methodological weaknesses, while accepting at face value the findings of studies that conclude safety, even though they suffer from the same methodological weaknesses.”
