Caius Rommens, the scientist who created the GMO potato says they are dangerous.
I believe that it is important for people to understand how little genetic engineers know, how biased they are, and how wrong they can be.
The GM potatoes do not discolour when bruised. Pathogens and toxins can accumulate in the bruised areas but, as the bruises can’t be seen, they aren’t cut out. He explains how the process of GM creates weak and damaged plants which are genetically unstable and at higher risk of disease. The pollen of the GM potato could inadvertently silence the genes of bees. He has written a book “Pandora’s Potatoes: The Worst GMOs.”
The GM potatoes are sold under the names of Innate, White Russet and Hibernate. They are not currently grown in Australia but were developed and owned by J.S. Simplot. The brands owned by J. S Simplot are Birds Eye, Leggo’s, Edgell, Lean Cuisine, Harvest, Chiko, I&J, Five Tastes and Simply Great Meals. Ask Simplot if they contain imported GM potatoes.

Simplot has attacked Dr Caius Rommens. Dr Rommens has responded they have not addressed the scientific and technical issues he raises.
