Geoengineered Omega-3 fish oil is coming our way unless we vote with our wallet

Premium Quality Omega-3 Fish OilDo you believe it is both healthy and ethical to crossbreed plant seeds so they can embody the same nutritional content as fish oil? Would our bodies know the difference and is that what nature intended?

As noted in an article published in BBC News on Jan. 9, 2014, scientists at Rothamsted Research have come up with a way of producing long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids normally found only in wild fish oils by crossbreeding Carmelina sativa (false flax) seeds with microalgae genes that they artificially produced by feeding fish oil to farmed salmon. The goal of these research scientists is to come up with an alternative, sustainable source of Omega-3 fish oil.

An immediate area of concern is that these microalgae genes originate from farm raised salmon, which can be a source of cancer-causing contaminants such as PCBs and dioxin, as noted by these articles and YouTube link.

Moreover, Jeffrey M. Smith from the Institute for Responsible Technology has this to say about the dangerous side effects that can result from genetic engineering:

By mixing genes from totally unrelated species, genetic engineering unleashes a host of unpredictable side effects. Moreover, irrespective of the type of genes that are inserted, the very process of creating a GM plant can result in massive collateral damage that produces new toxins, allergens, carcinogens, and nutritional deficiencies.

Meanwhile, influential trade associations and multinational agribusinesses are lobbying aggressively to radically alter the whole concept and meaning of natural food, as noted by this recent article.

Will they succeed? Only time will tell. Meanwhile, it’s up to each one of us to be educated on important food issues and use our pocketbooks as a way to tell these groups what we think.
