Beware of GMO Potatoes – Dr Mercola

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
