Unacknowledged Health Benefits of Genetically Modified Food: Salmon and Heart Disease Deaths
Lutter, Randall W.
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The marketing of genetically modified (GM) salmon will lower salmon prices and increase consumption of salmon, an exceptionally good source of omega-3 fatty acids linked to lower risk of heart disease. We estimate that the resulting increase in omega-3 intake will prevent between 600 and 2,600 deaths per year in the United States.
