Genetically modified foods can effect an individual’s genetics!
According to Natural News, with a global daily production of 9 million pounds of fries a day, McDonald’s is looking for better ways to lower the cost of processing potatoes for fry production. This business move may encourage and embrace new GMO potato agriculture, spearheaded by their very own potato distributor, none other than Simplot.
Simplot has come up with a new “Innate” brand of potatoes that don’t use synthetic bacteria. Instead, their variety effectively silences potato DNA to stop the potatoes’ natural bruising process. This would reduce black spots in potatoes, thus increasing crop yields. McDonald’s wouldn’t have to throw away bad potatoes. They could increase revenues with the new enzyme-stripped “Innate” potato by reducing waste.
Haven Baker, Simplot’s Harvard- and Yale-trained vice-president of plant sciences, said his scientists journeyed inside the vegetable’s genome to “silence” unwanted attributes, while making sure that it remained 100 percent potato. “You’ll never get as much beneficial effect from traditional plant breeding,” he says. “And it’ll take twice as long.”

Researchers in India have developed a genetically modified potato, loaded with genetically altered amino acids. It seems as if scientists are attempting to recreate nature entirely.
Genetically modified potatoes now threaten the purity of potatoes internationally. All it takes is a careless farmer to allow his modified crop to be planted elsewhere, without properly labeling the crop as modified. This would mix in the genetically modified crop with traditional, and even organic, crops. This is a legitimate environmental issue, as it is a major threat to food integrity.

It has been nearly 20 years since genetically modified ingredients were first introduced in America. Since then, scientists have used genetic engineering to create horrifying animal hybrids. Scientists have borrowed genes from a jellyfish to make other organisms glow and have even implanted spider genes in goats as a means of creating super-strength silk. Now, the US is following a similar path, with the FDA considering genetically modified salmon for approval.
The supposedly safe for consumption AquAdvantage salmon was partially created through a combination of genomes taken from other fish such as a gene from the pout fish to prevent freezing and a growth gene from the Chinook salmon to bring forth faster growth. On September 19th, the case for the approval of AquAdvantage salmon will be presented. This means that the FDA could give the green light to allow for more poison food on our dinner tables over the next few weeks.
