Genetically Modified Fish Weird!

Genetic Engineering is a series of techniques to isolate, modify, reproduce, and recombining genes from different organisms. According to scientists in molecular biology, Mae Wan Hoo, in his book, this technique allows the transfer of genes between different species that can not mate with each other naturally, such as fish genes inserted into tomatoes and human genes transferred to the sheep.

This technology is designed to break the barriers between species and weaken the defense mechanisms of the species. Genetic engineering of plants and animals began in the mid-1970s that triggered the discovery of several key techniques in molecular genetics.

Mutant fish is the result of research Professor at the University of Rhode Island, Mr. Terry Bradley. By genetically modifying trout, fish of this mutant has a muscle mass between 15-20% higher than the standard fish.

Connects again to the mutant fish that, as for the study of them by blocking myostatin, a protein that slows growth. They inject thousands of trout eggs with various types of DNA that inhibit myostatin workrate.

The positive effects of the results of this research is commercially, with the result that more fish meat, but without adding the cost of fish feed.

America is very diligent research on GMOs, from the plant until the animal. Sure commercially, the results of GMO products is very profitable. However, in health, remains a question mark whether it is safe to consume GMO products? Agan still remember it as the case of soybeans imported from America which was the transgenic soybeans?

Sure, as long as there has been no scientific reports in Indonesia that prove the dangers of GMO products, in addition to allergic reactions (This product has been withdrawn from the market). Thus, until recently, GMO products are still suitable for consumption. However, it is recognized that the publicity about the risks of transgenic food products to humans, is still very small. And may actually negatively impact the consumption of transgenic products has been a lot happening in the community just is not much data to prove it.
