GMO pig

Not for food, but approved for food & drugs, this pig lacks a certain sugar found in meats.

    I'm pretty horrified by this. Is there any suggestion of it being approved in Canada?

    @torey I haven't heard anything about that yet. Considering that CTV ran this story, I would imagine they'd say if it was a possibility in the near future.

    Yep, just another "bonus" of 2020...and it isn't over yet. Just wait for the dawning of 2021. Greater things must surely await. 😬

    All the more reason to find a local producer and verify the heritage of the animals. That is if you are not living in a large city or metropolitan area.

    @Silkiemamuska I couldn't agree more. I have a semi-local farmer that I work with for all of my beef and pork. It is about 2- 2.5 hour drive to his farm from me seeing as how I live in a large metropolitan area. I am very blessed that he calls me when my order is ready and he meets me half way! The product that we get from him is so wonderful I would probably drive the whole distance if it were necessary.

    That is most certainly NOT SLIPPY APPROVED!

    This world has done gone crazier and crazier than I ever thought!

    What we do to animals is always a harbinger of what we do to ourselves eventually. The animals are always a subconscious 'trial run" for where we envision ourselves headed.
