|3/9/2016 - Mankind has irrevocably altered the natural ecosystem. We've polluted the oceans, the atmosphere and the soil, we've cut down rainforests and sought to conquer even the most inhospitable of places on Earth. When it seemed that it couldn't get any worse, Murphy's Law showed us otherwise. We started playing...|

Disturbing new research has indicated that young salmon found in Puget Sound tested...|
|2/12/2016 - It seems like every day health officials are saying something new about what we should and shouldn't be eating.

|11/30/2015 - If that glistening salmon filet in the cold case at the grocery store looks bigger and more ... engineered than normal in 2016, it could be the laboratory version of real salmon grown under AquaBounty Technologies' patented "AquAdvantage" label (which, ironically, won't actually be labeled for consumers),...|
|11/25/2015 - Federal regulators recently made the unprecedented decision to unleash the world's first genetically-modified (GM) animal life form – a transgenic salmon species that its manufacturer claims grows artificially large, and much more quickly, than natural salmon. And this mutated "Frankenfish," known...|
|11/20/2015 - Just as we predicted, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has brazenly betrayed the public's trust by approving the world's first genetically modified (GM) animal in direct defiance of science – a transgenic salmon branded "AquAdvantage" that has never been proven safe for human consumption...|

|6/11/2013 - Remember all those industry claims that genetically-modified (GM) AquAdvantage salmon would not be harmful to the environment in any way, and would not breed with other fish because it is inherently sterile?

|9/10/2012 - There is a reason why those radiant, pink salmon filets and juicy, golden chicken breasts in the meat case at the grocery store typically appear unusually appetizing -- but it often has nothing to do with the natural colorings of these animals' flesh. It might come as a surprise to many readers, but...|

|10/6/2010 - As the world awaits the FDA's decision on whether to approve genetically modified salmon as "safe enough" to allow into the food supply, it seems that not enough people in the existing fishing industries have really thought this through. As you'll see here, approval of GE salmon could destroy the existing...|
|10/3/2010 - Has the FDA gone completely mad? Why are they trying to open the flood gates to genetically engineered (GE) salmon -- a move that will go down in history as one of the most asinine and dangerous ever made by our government?
