(NaturalNews) The U.S. House of Representatives passed a law today that would effectively bar the FDA from approving GM salmon. This is a direct result of the rising awareness of the dangers of GMOs among American consumers, along with steady coverage of the issue by the alternative media (including NaturalNews) and the efforts of Jeffrey Smith from ResponsibleTechnology.org
For months, the FDA has seemed on the verge of approving GM salmon. They claim it's no different than regular salmon and has zero health risks. This is a lie, of course: The FDA has no idea what the long-term health effects are from genetically modified salmon (or GM foods of any other kind, actually), and the pending approval of GM salmon was actually the result of criminal corruption inside the FDA which now favors big corporate interests instead of the health and safety American people.
The FDA, it turns out, will approve almost any poison -- even one that kills people or gives them cancer -- as long as some sufficiently wealthy corporation profits from it. All the so-called "scientific scrutiny" the FDA says it conducted in regards to GM salmon was nothing more than an elaborate circus act designed to bring the appearance of science to an agenda that has nothing to do with science at all... and everything to do with politics and profit (http://www.naturalnews.com/029770_salmon_gen...).
The FDA is so incredibly corrupt that it believes consumers should NOT even know which foods contain genetically modified ingredients! The idea that GMO foods should be honestly labeled is considered highly offensive by the FDA. It wants to keep consumers ignorant of what's in their food because if people really knew what was in most of the food they buy, they would be absolutely horrified.
GMOs, as NaturalNews readers well know, are not merely carriers of the genetic code to produce poison pesticides; they have also been scientifically proven to cause widespread infertility. (http://www.naturalnews.com/025001.html)
How do you stop a rogue federal agency from poisoning the people?
Alaskan Republican Don Young gets the credit for spearheading this effort to halt GM salmon. He accomplished this by amending a farm spending bill and including language that prevents the FDA from spending money on approving GM salmon.
The reason this strategy is necessary is because the FDA is a rogue agency that largely operates outside the law to pursue its own agenda. As explained by attorney Jonathan Emord, author of The Rise of Tyranny (http://www.amazon.com/Rise-Tyranny-Jonathan-...), U.S. federal agencies operate as Kingdoms that respect no law and are run by unelected bureaucrats. The FDA respects no law and no freedoms whatsoever -- not even the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The only way Congress can intervene in the FDA's agenda to keep Americans ignorant of the presence of GMOs in their food is to deprive it of the funding it needs to operate.
This is why the FDA is constantly trying to expand its budget through deceptive legislation efforts such as the S.510 Food Safety Bill. Every corrupt (evil) federal agency always wants more money so that it can have more power and authority over everybody else. And because the people who run these agencies are never elected (FDA, FTC, USDA, DEA, DHS, etc.), they answer to no one and can never be removed from their jobs by the voters.
This is how tyranny grows, just as we've seen with the TSA and its lewd body searches that are conducted in complete violation of the Fourth Amendment.
Not yet law
This effort to deny the FDA the ability to approve GM salmon isn't a law yet. It's only been passed by the House. Now the Senate needs to approve a similar amendment before it can become law. So the battle continues in the Senate...
If this effort succeeds, it will be the first time the U.S. Congress has really stood up against the FDA to fight for real food safety in the United States of America. And it may signify the beginning of a huge public backlash against GMOs that will ultimately end in GMOs being outlawed in the USA.
Watch for more posts here at NaturalNews as we track the outcome of this legislative effort. Also, I predict the FDA will hurry up and try to approve GM salmon in the next few weeks before this bill becomes law, thereby circumventing its effects. If it does, the FDA will actually be guilty of unleashing what can only be called an experimental biological weapon onto the U.S. public.
It will also destroy the salmon industry because no one will trust salmon anymore. If you don't know which salmon is GMO or not, would you keep buying salmon? Probably not.
