Yay or Nay: Would you eat this potato?


Scientists found that the carcinogen acrylamide forms in deep fried foods, particularly chips.  Another problem with potatoes is that the longer they're stored, the more they break down, becoming mushy and unpalatable.  Simplot in Idaho hopes to change that, with their GM potato that 'rebuffs' acrylamide when fried, and stays firm and fresh longer in storage.  Would you eat this superior-tasting, less-carcinogenic, but genetically-modified, potato?  Post yay or nay in comments.  [GT]

Genetically modified spud healthier, creators say
