Monsanto preys on popularity of omega-3s by developing GMO soybean that produces fake fish oil "Soymega"
Monsanto preys on popularity of omega-3s by developing GMO soybean that produces fake fish oil. Well, I guess we had better stock up on the real fish oil before we are forced to consume this Genetically Modified "frankenbean" product. I personally buy my Omega 3s from a vendor who sells only the pure salmon oil harvested from fish in the arctic. I wonder how long it will be before they are forced out of business by this tyranny of one chemical company.
"(NaturalNews) Leave it to Monsanto to take a good thing and corrupt it for financial gain. According to a recent report in Forbes, the multinational biotechnology-slash-agriculture-manipulating monolith has developed a new genetically-modified (GM) soybean that artificially produces stearidonic acid, a type of omega-3 fatty acid -- and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to approve the "frankenbean" sometime this year.
"Monsanto appears to be introducing the omega-3 enhanced GM soybean oil, called Soymega or "stearidonic acid soybean oil" (SDA oil), at a craftily strategic time when much of the world is still reeling from the Fukushima Daiichi mega-disaster, which left ocean waters ridden with radioactive isotopes. And since omega-3s just happen to be most readily found in fatty ocean fish, the perpetual fear over radioactive and other poisons that may be lurking in such fish could drive many to embrace Monsanto's fake fish oil instead.
Monsanto created its GM soybean oil by injecting two specific enzymes into soybean genes. One came from Primula juliae, a type of flower, and the other from Neurospora crass, a type of red mold that grows on bread. As a result, the beans produce SDA oil and gamma-linolenic acid, two compounds not normally found in soybeans."
Monsanto preys on popularity of omega-3s by developing GMO soybean that produces fake fish oil. Each day when I read these articles I find myself more and more enraged by the manipulation and criminal behavior of the FDA. The federal government enables and endorses such betrayal of public trust by allowing these toxic products to be sold to consumers, who, blindly go ahead and buy this garbage without a single thought to doing research as to what the product does to human health. It boggles the mind at the magnitude of denial that drives public consciousness, enabled by the corrupt media who are told what to and what not to publish.
