the mayor's youth commission took part in the health initiative. jenna: the f-d-a made a big announcement today, saying they've approved the first genetically modified animal for human consumption. salmon. the company behind the engineered salmon "aqua- bounty " calls the move a "game changer" in the market. the company takes d-n-a from a chinook salmon... and from a sea eel... to produce a aew salmon. the idea is help the fishrow quickly the salmon will be grown in panama and canada and will be sold i. the u-s. and although the process to grow the fish is improved there are still some opposed to g-m-o based foods. it's something doctor richard besser says is not a real cause for concern. "in order to get approval from the food and drug administration, they evaluauad the fish for safety, they evaluated ititor nutritional content, and they evaluated whether the process was safe for the salmon themselves. and on all three counts the product passed, and so that's why the fda approved it."
dr besser says when scientists compared it with conventionally farmed salmon they couldn't find any differences between thtwo test groups. from a medical standpoint therers been no evidence that there are health risks from genetically modified food. qn fact it's something that's been in the food industry for years. "we have always genetically modified our food. we've selected for tomatoes that tasted sweeter and lasted longer during shipping. we've crossbred different varieties of apples to get new varieties of apples. and so genetic modification is something that's always been there. thisiss using a different techniququ to accomplish that, and i think we'll continue to see new techniques that lead to a food supply that has qualities that people are looking for." health experts say if you have concerns look for the label "wild caught" when you go to your local grocery store. tim: thanksgiving is just a week away.
