GM salmon: what are the minor health and environmental risks found by FDA?

24 Dec

 

A GM salmon could become the first genetically-modified animal in the world to be declared officially safe to eat, after America’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reported to have ruled:

  • it posed no major health risks,
  • it posed no major environmental risks.
  • it is unlikely to pose major health or environmental risks,
  • it is highly unlikely to pose major health or environmental risks.

It is heartening to read the comments in the Denver Post:
