These days, a big chunk of our produce is genetically modified and now fish is the new experiment! They are calling it the "Frankenfish". How fitting. We are starting to realize the dangers of GMO produce but are GMO fish going to be worse?
What is a "Frankenfish" ?
A "Frankenfish" is genetically engineered fish that grows faster and bigger than normal fish. "Frankenfish" can grow 10 times the size of normal fish in the first year. Salmon was the first species to be modified and we can be fairly certain that transgenic fish will enter the marketplace eventually, right now it’s waiting on FDA approval.
Potential Risks for Consumers?
There are unknown health risks of eating GE fish, scientists cannot predict the outcome of human consumption until it happens. There will also be a difficult task of trying to purchase unaffected fish. There may be no labeling of transgenetic fish, making it impossible to identify them in supermarkets.
How Can I Make Sure I Am Buying Non-GMO Fish?
Luckily, there are still options for getting quality produce and avoiding genetically modified food. Going "vegan" or "vegetarian" is the only concrete way to avoid it but, if you can't kick a no-fish diet here are some good options!
I am a guru for anything that can cut the use of harmful chemicals and conserve waste, so I had to share this! Last Night I had the pleasure of meeting Tammy Walker who is the Senior Executive Sales Leader of Norwex products. Norwex are cleaning products that not only healthier for people and the environment but are scientifically engineered to be more effective than any cleaning product on the market! Norwex products are originally from Norway and the company started out with manufacturing microfiber cleaning cloths. But what makes these cloths different and effective in killing bacteria is the embedded micro silver lining within it. I was amazed not only by the effective demonstrations, but also by the scientific evidence found by a third party testing the product. Check out this video I think you'll be as impressed with it as I was!
Not only does this company sell micro fiber silver embedded cloths, they now have mops, soaps, detergent, silicone lids, and many more products! I love giving a gift that will not only benefit the person I'm giving it to but the environment too! I think these are great gifts that will be used and loved!
