Beware of GMO Potatoes

Any product made with potato will be subject to added scrutiny before it can receive The Non-GMO Project’s verification stamp due to widespread prevalence of genetically engineered (GE) potato in the U.S. food supply

The first-generation GE Innate® potato, developed by J.R. Simplot and branded simply as White Russet™, was approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 2014 and entered the U.S. marketplace the following year
The Innate® potato has been modified using RNA interference (RNAi) technology to inhibit blackspot bruising and browning by reducing levels of asparagine and certain enzymes in the potato

Genetic engineer Caius Rommens, former director of R&D at J.R. Simplot Co. and a former team leader at Monsanto, has written a tell-all book about the GE potatoes

In his book, “Pandora’s Potatoes: The Worst GMOs,” Rommens reveals the GE potatoes contain unstable traits and unintended mutations that compromise nutrition, noting they are likely to contain new toxins


Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away--Wows happen!!!
