Don’t make stuff up

People say the darndest things.  Take this alarmist article about AquaBounty GMO salmon:

…approval for its highly-allergenic AquAdvantage Frankenfish without so much as a shred of independent, legitimate scientific evidence proving that the imitation fish is safe for humans and the environment…

Approving AquAdvantage Salmon is controversial, but its risk as an allergen is not a major issues.  The fish has been tested for its allergenic potential. For this anti-GMO site to call the salmon “highly-allergenic” in the same sentence where they bemoan lack of evidence for the safety of the fish is the height of hypocrisy.

If you oppose making this fish commercially available, state your case.  But please don’t make stuff up.  It ruins your credibility.
