Do You Know If You're Eating GMO Fish?
10 Jun   by Lisa

Most of you who have read through my posts know how I feel about GMO's in general.  To say the least, I'm not fond of them.  In fact, I am passionate about increasing the publics' knowledge about GMO foods and exposing what we aren't being told.  My husband knows how I feel about GMO's and he passed along this great article, which I want to share with you.  It's pretty scary to think that we really don't know where our food supply comes from and what's been done to it.  Some say we need regulations or we need the government involved to regulate labeling.  But how much government involvement do we really want?  There is evidence that there are government cover-ups about GMO's as it is, so how do we know that with more regulations the labeling will be accurate? 
 
I just want to know what I am truly putting in my body, so that it is my choice and not someone else's.  But enough politics.  One sure way is to be self-sustainable, however, for many people being totally self-sustainable is not possible.  Many of us don't have the land to grow acres of grains on but most of us can grow our own organic produce.  We can buy local also if we have the option. 
 
When it comes to fish, we know eating wild salmon is good for us.  It is high in omega-3 fatty acids which our bodies need.  But how do we know if the salmon is truly wild?  I have asked at restaurants and most do not know.  Since wild is more expensive, most restaurants serve farmed.  There is even something called "wild-farmed" salmon.  Inspections have found that manufacturers claims of "wild salmon" are not always true.  They found that many were actually farmed.
