I don´t think this is the case. What is happening is the farmers want to grow non GM crops and are finding that their crops are contaminated by the GM strains. They not only lose their organic certification but are vulnerable to lawsuits by the “owners” of said strain.
Monsanto owns the patent on these strains and can sue farmers whose feilds contain them even if it is due to cross-pollination.
There is absolutely no way to control this as was claimed when they were introduced
Inventions that concern animals or plants are therefore granted a patent if these animals or plants are not obvious on the basis of what is already known and have beneficial properties. The inventor thus makes a contribution and receives the patent that grants him exclusive rights for a limited period of time.
Where genetically modified animals or plants are concerned, this practice is not called into question by the opponents, and instead the motion only concerns the case where the agricultural livestock or plants have been obtained by means of conventional breeding processes. Even if a known process is applied, this does not mean that patentable products with new advantageous properties have not been obtained.
So, if company (who produces new breeds by selection) will suspect foul play, you can get lawsuit.
Farmed salmon whether genetically altered or not have a lot more contaminants than wild salmon.
Again, as previously mentioned, this is not about the salmon but rather the process of approval for this new food-drug. First off, the company that is selling it has been left in charge of determining it´s health risks. BAD IDEA. Secondly, rather than a full envioronmental assessment they have opted for one that is much less extensive. BAD IDEA
Once the floodgates are opened there will be many new products which pose different types of risks:
I don´t know what would happen but I know what wouldn´t happen. They wouldn´t be at risk of being sued by a huge multinational corporation with bottomless pockets.
Again, I don´t know exactly what the long-term impacts are but feel that the blueprint for the appbvalprocess is lacking.
Are you really comfortable with it?
