How will farmed fish eat wild fish food stock or spread infection to wipe out wild fish and what is the Proof that the fish are unhealthy? .... What is 'Limited Testing' I it One fish? and is the hormone not linked to cancer irrespective of quantity?

I agree that labelling is essential on all products but let us not dismiss these fish because of a 'Knee jerk' reaction to the GM label and scare mongering unsubstantiated statements!

When Independent testing was done by the FDA some of the findings on GM were extremely worrying & since no Independent testing was done many new GM products are being used- watch the documentary 'The Future of Food'- you will soon see what all the fuss is about!

I agree with Dave. We are already engineering our food sources to feed an expanding world population. However, consumers also need to know what they are buying, so accurate labeling is a must.

Been there done that and I agree we should be wary of Gene enginineering which is mostly profit driven however the statements attached to this 'cause' are at best vague and appear to be unsubstantiated and deliberately misleading. ......... The matters raised in points 3 & 4 are extremely bald statements with no reference or backup. They are questionable and aimed at those who have little or no knowledge and a lot of fear due to the misinformation. The FDA have already been shown to...

The FDA have already been shown to be culpable in matters like the new artificial sweeteners they have declared as OK in Organic foods and the FDA labelling requirements are a joke!

Last year in Gran Manan, Nova Scotia, I was'nt able to buy sardines: a fisherman told me they were fished, among others, to feed salmon, not humans.... It is also true that concentration of farmed salmon brings diseases and parasites that are already spreading to the wild population in certain areas. And it is unfortunate that foods are engineered under the popular argument that it allows to feed an expanding population. Engineered foods were, mainly if not completely, a created need meant...

Last year in Gran Manan, Nova Scotia, I was'nt able to buy sardines: a fisherman told me they were fished, among others, to feed salmon, not humans.... It is also true that concentration of farmed salmon brings diseases and parasites that are already spreading to the wild population in certain areas. And it is unfortunate that foods are engineered under the popular argument that it allows to feed an expanding population. Engineered foods were, mainly if not completely, a created need meant to enrich seed companies under arguments that made them acceptable to us. Humans have always been able to select seed varieties and agricultural methods efficient under different environments and not only at small scale farming. Globalization should allow for rapid distribution of such methods and seeds under rapid climate conditions... but our governments have decided to support mainly, if not only, an industrial type of agriculture. Being it bad for my health or not, I don't want to support that.

And meanwhile 71 Senators voted today to not allow states the power to regulate the labeling of GMOs. Monsanto has them in their pockets. Find out how your Senator voted and remember when you vote.

Maybe when we kick the Monsanto share holders out of our Government, they will wake up to the poison this company is trying to feed us... Its a fact that no other country in the world wants GMO foods... even the nations that are starving rejected boat loads of GMO food... NOW That has to tell you something other than how stupid Americans are. OH Just read an article that even the cafeteria at the MONSANTO PLANT only serves heirloom grown products.... HELLO!!!!!

i mean, we've been selectively breeding things for ever, this just seems like the logical next step.

This is not selectively breeding... this is a mass experiment on people participating without knowing they are being used as guinea pigs. There are numerous studies suggesting many harmful effects to GMO's. What gives these corporations the right to unleash products with unknown consequences on the public without at least warning us?

Remember this corporations. Write down all CEOs and board members. Record their pictures, their family. Find where they live. Where they eat. Work. Drive. One day, when all our fish are destroyed, we must find these people & dispense justice. The government will not punish them. Corporations bought our government. Vengence is justice in action. Do not let these CRIMINALS get away.

http://salmonconfidential.ca/ ... a well made documentary on the how sick not just GMOs are, fish-farming in general pumps their waste and pathogens into the water that can infect wild salmon.
