Varieties of GMO Potatoes. The potatoes have been genetically modified to reduce black spots and bruises by lowering certain enzymes. These varieties have also been also modified to produce less acrylamide -- a potentially cancer-causing chemical that forms when starchy foods are heated at high temperatures.
Scientist that discovered GMO health hazards immediately fired, team dismantled. (NaturalNews) Though it barely received any media attention at the time, a renowned British biochemist who back in 1998 exposed the shocking truth about how genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) cause organ damage, reproductive failure, digestive dysfunction,...
Same goes for canola. More than half of sugar beets are also grown from GMO seeds. The same cannot be said for potatoes. Indeed, field tests of an early GMO potato variety sparked one of the first protests against the technology back in the late 1980s and the industry remained largely GMO-free.
GMO potatoes were originally halted in Europe after a team of 30 researchers on a budget of 2 million euros in 1998 found serious potential health risks in genetically modified potatoes. But now a similar potato has landed on United States grocery store shelves, backed by the potato company J.R. Simplot.
One of the very first Bt GMO crops to be developed was NewLeaf Potatoes by Monsanto in 1995, however, demand for this variety was so low that they discontinued the line in 2001. Another GMO attempt was made to produce potatoes high in amylopectin starch for the production of waxy potato starch . This GMO potato,...
The result of the study showed that: “the young rats fed the genetically modified potatoes grew smaller livers, hearts, and brains than the rats fed regular potatoes or non-GM potatoes spiked with lectin.”
The study, led by Gilles-Eric Seralini of the University of Caen, was the first ever study to examine the long-term (lifetime) effects of eating GMOs. He was later forced to retract it because of major pressure by Big Food, agribusiness giant Monsanto and colluding governments.
Genetically modified potatoes are studied, criticized in Ireland. In a secured government greenhouse in Carlow, Ireland, plant scientist Ewen Mullins examines transplants of genetically modified potatoes engineered to resist late blight disease. (Adrian Higgins/The Washington Post)
The blog "10 Scientific Studies Proving GMOs Can Be Harmful To Human Health" is now a fixture on cyberspace. A scientist takes a hard look at the claims and finds the "studies" tell a different ...
Genetically modified potatoes can be engineered to have a gene from a cold water fish (that is, a gene from the fish is inserted into the potato's genome) so that the potatoes become resistant to cold temperatures and harsh weather conditions.
