Let's just skip over the part where I try to explain why I haven't posted in almost a month and go right to the part where I tell you that, after considerable mental floundering, I've given a lot of thought to where I want to go with this blog and that, while I don't have a complete plan for its future just yet, I have some ideas- the fruit of which will soon be forthcoming. Meanwhile, there are a few things I'd like to wrap up- the fruit of which will also be forthcoming.

GE Salmon About To Be Approved With No Labeling?

I'm really starting to think the FDA should be considered a subsidiary of a corporate conglomeration rather than a government body intended to serve the public.

The FDA is "considering" approval of genetically engineered salmon. From the center for Food Safety article:
FDA announced the same day that it will hold a public comment period and a hearing on labeling for the transgenic salmon, which seems to presuppose that the controversial GE fish will be approved. If the GE fish is approved, Agency officials are undecided as to whether they will require any product labeling.
NO PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD has been opened on the question of whether to approve GE fish and there is only a BRIEF PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD on the question of labeling GE fish. Check out the article at the Center for Food Safety website, to read more about this issue and to make your voice heard.
