No on GMOs

Posted: April 9, 2012 - 12:05am

As a youth delegate at the Alaska Youth for Environmental Action Civics & Conservation Summit, I have focused on House Bill 100. This bill proposes the ban of cultivation of genetically modified fish in the state of Alaska.

Genetically modified fish can have a major impact on wild salmon, and they pose unknown risks to human health. No long-term studies have been conducted to determine the effects. Therefore GM fish cannot be considered healthy to eat.

Wild salmon are a major part of Alaska’s pride and economy; hurting our wild salmon destroys a major part of Alaska.
