A little insight on GM foods

So we wanted to discuss genetically modified foods the other day in class, but didn't really know a lot of the background on the safety, or studies that had been done to provide insight on safety issues. I came across this article about the new "franken salmon," and the lack of studies done on them by the company AquaBounty Tech. It explains a bit about the raised allergenic properties in the proteins of modified foods, and the way these fish are manufactured.

Thanks for posting this Jais - we will be exploring GM Foods and this company's fish later in the semester, so this will be a good resource.
