The FDA fast-tracks genetic modifications in animals based on the principle of being “substantially equivalent” to the unmodified species, thereby avoiding rigorous testing that would normally be required. This false notion is promoted by the biotech companies themselves, much to the chagrin of normal citizens and scientists. ⁃ TN Editor

At the start of this week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it had made a low-risk determination for the marketing of products – including food – from two genome-edited beef cattle and their offspring after determining that an intentional genomic alteration did not raise any safety concern.

The genomic alteration? Well, the IGA at hand results in cattle having the short-hair or “slick” coat seen in some conventionally bred cattle. The FDA reports that scientific literature indicates that cattle with this trait are potentially able to better withstand hot weather.

The IGA was introduced using a genome-editing technique know as CRISPR. It can now be passed on to offspring allowing the trait to be shared through conventional breeding. The product developer plans to use the genetic products from these two animals with select customers in the global market soon and anticipates meat products will be available for purchase by general consumers in as early as 2 years.

Data reviewed by the FDA confirms that this intentional genomic alteration results in the same trait as in cattle found in conventional agriculture and that, furthermore, the food is the same from animal to animal regardless of how they gained the trait.

Reading the full story is getting difficult!

Yeah, lets render it all down to one biological species of cow, do some bio reserch and accidentally prodices a lethal virus that wipes out that one species of cow and wham, the vegans all count it as a win. No testing required. just blindly move forward without considering all rhe possibilities and why we have such a natural bio-diversity. Just eliminate cows and food animals all together and grow wvweything in a petre dish and produce protean called Soilent Green on a planet that we killed. What habe we already lost in bio-diversity in the past 60 years? Smart… Read more »

Here too, how is it possible that these sick criminals can do whatever they want?

Wishful Thinker

FDA. Stupid people still trust the FDA. Reason for which these sick criminals can do whatever they want. FDA : national school of corruption and iniquity.

Well, we have come full circle. There is nothing new under the sun.
